Another day, another port. The Dominican Republic is the eastern side of the island of Hispaniola. The western side is Haiti. We docked at a port called La Romana. There are a few different things you can do here. We chose to visit some caves call Cueva de las Miravillas (the cave of miracles).

... maturity levels among this wide range of students. We have started weekly mentoring sessions, as she really has had no training in French before, and wants to be able to teach the students to speak properly after I leave. She is a wonderful person and teacher, and the students all love her...they love all of their teachers.
