Accomodations Throughout the Week

Each place we stayed at was simple but nice in its own unique way.

For the first two nights we stayed at a teacher’s college in San Pedro called Juan Vicente de Moscoso. We stayed in a dorm where students from out of town would normally board. The campus way very pretty with lots of flowers and trees, a cage of birds, a basketball court and outside benches and tables to enjoy the nice weather.

For the next two nights we stayed at a former resort called Boca Canaste Caribe in Bani. This place was very quiet and serene and after a long busy day we had the opportunity to relax by the pool. We were right on the beach and could here the crashing waves as we slept at night. We learned to make do without electricity and found the light of our candles created a very peaceful atmosphere.

For the last two nights, we stayed at Manresa Altagracia, a religious place where nuns and priests lived in Santo Domingo. I don’t think we had ever been so thankful for hot water and electricity before. The grounds were very sunny and offered a beautiful view of the houses in the city below and and the city lights at night from the rooftop.
