Samana, Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic was a good port. We got to partake in community service projects in Las Terrenas, mine being mural painting at a local school. The theme of the murals was about education, whether it be about imagination, reading, or nature. Our group chose reading, but we managed to sneak in an image of the Gulden Leeuw. While painting the first mural, a few local children came along and asked us if they could help us paint. They painted some flowers and added their handprints on the wall, all the while getting more paint on us than the wall in the process. We also got to sleep off of the ship this port for 2 nights, some students at home stays and some in hotels.
