Here's a picture of my house from the front. It is in a neighborhood called Medina and is only about 5 blocks from downtown. There is a corner market, called a Colmado, about 1 block away, which is very convenient for quick purchases.
This is the porch that I sit at every morning to drink my coffee and watch people go by on the street.
This is our dog, Dee Dee. I've taken her running once, and she is not very good on a leash, but I'm hoping with time she'll get more used to it. I am very thankful that we have a dog as it is not very safe for a female to go running alone here, but with a dog I feel a lot safer.
This is my room.
I invited some friends over for the first of many "Family Dinner"s. I made lasagna and it was a big hit. A few more Dominicans arrived after this picture was taken (they are always on "Island Time")
