Life has pretty much fallen into a pattern here in the DR CCM. I get up out of bed and get ready. Next I have breakfast and then usually take a walk around the temple. After that, we head to class for 3 hours. Next, we have lunch. It is still pretty good, but it's the same thing everyday. Rice, chicken, beef, potatoes, and fruit. Oh well. Let's see, after lunch we have language study for 2 hours. Then we get to go outside and have gym time! After gym we have dinner. Guess what's after dinner? Yep, 3 more hours of classroom instruction. Then at 9 pm we plan and have CCM Prayer with everyone. I go to bed and get ready to repeat the process over the next day. It is definitely a pretty crazy life here, ha ha. However, occasionally we do get variety. On Mondays, we get to do service. Tuesdays, we have devotional. Thursdays, we have P-Day so we go the the temple and then the President takes us to different sites throughout Santo Domingo. Fridays, we get to leave and do some real contacting at the local university. So that's always exciting! So overall, my days are pretty much the same. They kinda run into each other. If I didn't have a calendar, I'm not sure I would know what day it is here.
This past week, I had some very exciting things happen! Last Thursday afternoon, President Glazier took us the the Colonial Zone next the the coast. It was where Christopher Columbus and his son settled after he discovered the new world. There is really old buildings, artifacts, and stuff like that. It was really fun learning about a colony that settled here 500 years ago. I have a ton of pictures, but you'll have to wait to see all of them. That was overall, very exciting! We got ice cream and it tastes very different from the US ice cream. But its super yummy!!
