  1. What continues to amaze me is the joy and gratitude expressed by the beneficiaries of Compassion sponsorship. Such a (relatively) small contribution turns into hope, a future.
    This is beautiful. Thank you for your sacrifice, for putting yourself out there and sharing these stories and sights by which we can all learn.

  2. Wow! The University sure has changed!

    I was looking through my DR journal and was reminded of “publicos” the public transportation cars. Make sure you don’t leave without at least one ride in a publico! 😉 It’s an experience you won’t forget.

    Keep posting the photos. They’re wonderful!!!!Thank you!
