Three Eyes, Guys Fried, and Good Byes
Zona Colonial, Dominican Republic
Today was our R&R day to wrap up the trip and it was wonderful! We started out with a trip to Tres Ohos or Three Eyes, which is a set of underground pools in a large cave that has been turned into a national park. Movies such as Jurassic Park and Tarzan had scenes filmed here....and the last secret was there is a 4th pool in the cavern you take a boat to go see!
Next it was off to the beach where we enjoy tiki huts for lunch and plenty of sun and surf! Taylor took down a fresh fish, head and all! We spent most of the afternoon in the water or lawn chairs while Rod and Barb walked the beach. It is what most of the American travelers see when they come to the DR, but as we reflected, we received so much more than just beach and sun this week!
We finished our day with our final team dinner at Christopher Columbus' buddy's place. We reflected with our DR Habitat partners on the week and complimented them on a wonderful trip. If anyone reading this blog wants to make a difference in the DR, reach out to anyone on our team and we can get you in contact with Natalie (see picture). She dotted every i and crossed every t with us this week and it's a great place to come with Habitat!
Tomorrow we head back home...I'll be up in just a few hours. Go Vikes!
