Dominican Republic Experience

Good Essays
You never realize how much you have until you see someone who has very little. I got to really see that when i got to go to the Dominican Republic. It was a great experience not just to see the historic places and the perfect blue ocean like the ones you see in pictures but also to help the people over there in need. The people there were really cool and i learned a lot from the from them and their culture.

    And then, taking naps became the only thing I would like to do during this flight. All of a sudden, the plane began to shake and it was shaking really hard. Even, you could not even keep your balance easily.
