John met us today, thanked us for all of our work, and said "today is all about you relaxing and enjoying the beauty of the Dominican."

It was exactly what I needed to hear after a terrible start to the morning. Most days, I'm getting only 6 hours of sleep, and am totally fine with that; staying up late sharing life stories with Jamie, waking up early to fit in some yoga on my beach facing balcony.

... enjoy being tourists.
On Friday we visited Santo Domingo which was 2 hours away and that was fun! We went on a tour of the city and we got to go into the cave of three eyes! This cave had bats in it and we had to take a boat from one side of the cave to the other side.
