Semana Santa

What a week it has been! At the school, the hen house is nearly finished after a hard week of work. Next week the roof should go on and the hens be delivered so we're ready to move forward with egg-collecting. I had the chance to work with the Defensa Civil, which is like the Dominican Red Cross, on Thursday and Friday. During the last four days of the week, they are sent to the beaches to help keep things safe and be ready for any accidents. It was a funny few days as I sat hoping no one would drown! As Candace and I don't exactly look Dominican, we got a some funny looks walking on the beach in our "uniform", but it was worth it for getting to experience this. And yes, the guy in the bottom right photo has a massive gun...I guess just in case!
