Due to the unsettled situation in Honduras, we are now going to the Dominican Republic for the first part of our training. We will be flying to Santo Domingo Wednesday morning and going to a training center near there. On Thursday, we will move in with our host family and will begin our intensive Spanish classes. Assuming that things stabilize in Honduras, we may be headed on to Honduras by the last week in July.
Our group looks about like what we had expected -- a lot of bright, attractive young people and three of us with gray hair. Our first day of orientation was well organized and overall it seems like a group that we will feel proud to be a part of.
We'll give you an update from the Dominican as soon as we have a chance.
