Dominican Independence and Culture: Part 3

Hello again!

Here are a few final pictures from the preschool/kindergarten fair last week. They're a bit random but show some popular aspects of the current culture.

The staple food--rice and beans:
It's tempting to put little hands in those dishes!
The Tourist Zone (a couple of hours away from us):
At the beach
(They probably have never been there in real life)
The Botanical Zone:
National bird: Cigua Paloma
National Flower: Mahogany

We can't forget the national sport, baseball!

Ready to play
Paul actually spent part of Independence Day playing baseball in an Ark vs. ANIJA staff game. He also went to watch the ANIJA boys team play in the Copa Coca Cola soccer tournament. Our guys love soccer even more than baseball here!

I hope you have enjoyed getting a glimpse into the Dominican culture over the past few days. Here are links to the first two parts in case you missed them.
