Last day!!!

Our last Day in the Dominican Republic was spent being a tourist. The Orphanage group first took us to a souvenir store
Orphanage Outreach is what keeps this place in business

We then went to a park with a clock tower designed by the man we designed the Eiffel Tower
If you've ever heard about our seen the movie The year of the Butterflies this is next to the daughter's husbands home (did that make any sense?)
We then checked out the orphanages English language center. The teach English here for students everyday and have a small library so they can check out books.
There were some good views from the top

Jacob and I with Bryson, the man in charge of organizing the dental trips.
We then got feed a delicious lunch at a restaurant
Can you spot the stewed goat on our plate?
We then headed to the ocean where there was a little hike you could take.

Behind us is the beach we walked down to to swim

All the girls
The boys
IT was a great way to end our trip. The water was so warm, the sand was smooth, and the sun was out in full force.
We also stopped for ice cream
The next morning we left early only to find out our flight was delayed. Because of this we missed our connecting flight. The airline was nice though and gave us free hotel accommodations and a meal voucher. It was nice having a warm shower and a good nights sleep before jumping on another plane.

The year of the butterflies... is that the same as In the Time of the Butterflies?

oops, yeah that's what it's called. I kept mixing it up. One night they showed that movie to give us a little history lesson.
