Dominican Republic Day 2

Hey hey hey! Here’s the second day of our Dominican Republic adventures. We visited the oldest monastery in the Americas, a structure that was never completed. It was pretty sweet seeing that, and was the last tourist-y place we visited before diving head first into the production for our book.

Meet Gerson and Raymond. They were the coolest translators you could ever meet, and that’s saying something. We instantly had a connection, and within a few hours, were chatting it up like long-time friends.

Next stop? The Haitian Batey. The poverty level in this place was unbelievably low, but these kids were so rad and so excited to see us. Oh, and there were chickens.

^I think he thought I was Jackie Chan.

And finally, we found some streetball (a variation of baseball), then went to Los Tres Brazos, a baseball training camp for youth in Santo Domingo.

And, Ali with all the kiddies.

More soon!
