Today we worked on building a fence in an incredibly rural area at a public school of Santo Domingo. I've always liked car rides because I like seeing things as we pass by, but car rides through the Dominican Republic are definitely the most interesting and crazy I've ever been on. Going to the orphanage we got to ride in a pick up truck with some of us even in the back (I got my turn on the way back). If you looked off the road for more than a minute you might miss something interesting. There are just so many things that I'm not used to seeing at home, such as people riding in carts pulled by horses and donkeys through the streets and people walking with bowls of food balanced on top of their heads. Those little things are the things that truly remind you that you're in a different culture and country. There are also tons of little things that remind you of the poverty level that people are living in. The shacks that people live in are basically pieces and sheets of metal pinned together to create a shelter. There are people in the middle of the streets trying to sell things to make any bit of money they can, even with the risk of being hit by a car.
