Day 1 - Starts with a Splash


Today was a long day full of two flights, three cramped taxi rides, a hotel switch and finally dinner at the buffet. As we type this we are safely at Memories Splash Hotel in Punta Cana. It is a beautiful 82 degree night with a warm breeze. Which is quit a step up from negative degree weather! 

            We left from a very busy and delayed Bradley International Airport this morning at 7:15 and arrived safely in Atlanta with only 30 minutes to spare for our next flight to Punta Cana at 10:30 this morning. With an hour time difference we arrived her in the beautiful Dominican at about 3:30 and it was island time from then on out! Our long-time friend and taxi driver Wilson picked us up and in a cramped van and we cruised straight to Joel and Elizabeth’s home to drop off the piano, which was exciting for them! 

            Checking in to the hotel, the woman in charge was telling us that because of the storm at home, there were many people who had to stay an extra week, which meant that their hotel was completely full. They had to send us to a hotel only 20 minutes away called Memories Splash. Because of this inconvenience, the hotel had given us a voucher for next time. Sue preformed some terrific bargaining for that! Wilson then brought us back to our new hotel just in time for dinner! 

           Hopefully turning in tonight early. It’s been a very long day, but we are all looking forward to what tomorrow has to bring. 

Adios,

Alicia, Kim, Ben, Caroline, Sue, and Corey
