Day 2,3,4

This is Annie from the Crown Council here. Dru has sent us a message here on our phone letting us know that the internet connection they use at the hotel Tambora where they are located in the DR is not working and so from Sunday night until Thursday evening she will not be able to update this blog. Although she did send a few notes about how the group is doing so I wanted to share them with you.


Sunday is more of a travel day. Everyone got up in the morning and either went sightseeing or to the church of their choice. Then around 11:00 it was on the road for a four hour drive up North to the beautiful city of Samana. Halfway through the ride the group stopped at a restaurant in a little town called Boca Chica. It is a beautiful outdoor restaurant that sits on a pier. They enjoyed a nice lunch and headed on to their destination. Today the group was also joined by 5 Dominican Dentists and 1 Hygienist. Dru said their group loves them and has gotten along with them so well. Throughout this week the Doctors that came from the States take a turn and help train the Dominican Dentists. It is always a nice break for them and the Dentists love it. Once they got to Hotel Tambora in Samana they rested and went to bed early to start the week. The city of Samana is so beautiful. It is very green and looks like Hawaii with the palm trees and regular trees everywhere.

Monday Day 2 of Clinics and Tuesday day 3 of Clinics

Yesterday and Today the group saw over 100 people each day. This includes adults and children. Their clinics were both at churches with great space to set everything up in. The weather has been fantastic and not super hot so nice to work in. Everyone is in good health except for a few sick stomachs but nothing serious. The team has been bonding and making lasting friendships. Dru said they have all really connected and it has been wonderful. The Dentists have been doing amazing and very difficult procedures. Once Dru gets to the next hotel she will post many pictures and tell detailed stories. For now they are off to work another day......
