Today, the school paid for a one-hour trip into the capital city of Roseau. This was great for a couple of reasons. First, the gorge scene from Pirates II was filmed there. Second, household necessities are much cheaper there than in our town of Portsmouth. We were able to get some of the things we’ve lacked for our house, which was nice.
We were SO excited to get a phone call telling us that our two 55-gallon barrels containing all of our possessions arrived this evening! Now I can wear underwear, again!!!! Dominica is turning out to be much like China in that it can take 4 hours to get one errand done. Simply getting a few fresh groceries can involve a serious time commitment and an entirely sweaty outfit. Seriously, my shirt was just dripping.
Tomorrow is technology day, which involves the IT department making sure Jacelyn’s computer is adequately “linked-up” or whatever so that she can get straight A’s in med school; so, that’s important, I’d say. Thats about all I know about tomorrow. I’ll let you know how it went once it happens.! 🙂
