Today was our first day getting to visit and do some work at the orphanage and it was a really great day. As we drove into the orphanage we drove through neighborhoods in Santo Domingo and got to see the sights and people on the streets of these neighborhoods. It was an incredibly interesting and eye-opening experience because you saw the lifestyle and living conditions that the people were living in. There were broken down buildings, people hanging out in front of random tiny stores and LOTS of stray dogs everywhere (we are keeping count of how many we see). Despite all of this, driving through the streets many people waved at us very friendly and soon we started to wave at all the people we saw out the window. We got some confused glances, but we mostly got waves and smiles from a lot of people. I thought it was pretty cool how friendly so many people were because they were a lot friendlier than random people at home would be.
