Settling into the RD

RD = Dominican Republic (initials in Spanish ordering of course) After almost two weeks here I am starting to settle in. Unfortunately, I started my visit to RD with five days in the capitol, Santo Domingo. Not being a novice to Latin American cities I should have known better. Actually I had some stuff to get done (a courier package to receive and another to send once I got the first) so I had an excuse for staying but nevertheless after 5 days my nerves were frazzled. I’m not quite sure how the residents of Santo Domingo retain their sanity in the assault of so much noise, pollution, constant haranguing, etc. In the smaller towns, these assaults happen too but then you are not constantly bombarded and so it is no big deal. In Santo Domingo, there is a lot to see and do and it is interesting and lively but I certainly was frazzled by the time I left. Some of the things the Dominicans have to deal with (and you as a tourist unless you are one of the many package tourists who stay only at their all-inclusive resorts and who journey out only on their all-inclusive tour buses) follow from my journal. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yr4M02o6PA afleurs.net wellsww.com fukuyamajapan.com nhiconsulting.com videonymph.com an2003.com hiwayhifionline.com anitagrier.com cwauctions.com sonyworld.net femalegirdle.com lamisionera2.com

So You Want To Eat Clean?

My name is Sarah and I’m the author of My (Mostly) Healthy Life. I’ve been a big advocate of the paleo diet for the majority of this year (I’m still a “newbie”), and recently I’ve had a lot of questions about it. Most recently I’ve had people asking how to get started and how to get motivated to eat paleo (or be stricter about it if they already kind of have the concept). Whenever anyone asks me this, one of the first things I always say is that I’m not perfect, and I don’t eat paleo sometimes. Sometimes I cheat (aka McDonalds) but I always end up feeling like ass when I do. I make it very clear that there are many people much stricter about it than I am, but I can definitely give some helpful tips because of the research I’ve done on it. The next thing I always recommend is purchasing the book The Paleo Solution. I don’t think it’s good to dive into something when you’ve done zero research on it. Robb Wolf is the author of this book and he’s one of the leading experts on the paleo diet, and he knows EVERYTHING about it – I’m not even kidding. I can tweet him when I have a random question and he gets back to me every time… It’s unreal! He’s amazing. The book not only explains the paleo diet, but it also gives a meal plan for 4 weeks of meals that you can easily attempt (it includes leftovers so it’s not like you’re spending a million dollars making a new recipe for every meal you eat). I would highly, HIGHLY recommend reading this when you start on your paleo/eating clean journey. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_3R6lpSLn0 analogism.net gibhardt.org escortia.org europehouse.org europehouse.net webhouseclub.org andmagazine.org shopwatch.org habessos.com afleurs.net

Lost Language Department – Up The Stairs

It’s been sort of a rough week for my head. It seems as though I’m not only losing my English but simultaneously sucking at Spanish. I guess the English started slipping over time and with such immersion, it’s only a matter of time before the grammar starts to go. According to my dad, my blogs are getting sloppier and sloppier. I now speak no language well. It’s been sort of a rough week for my head. It seems as though I’m not only losing my English but simultaneously sucking at Spanish. Canada flag, Photo by Sam Daams Last week when I spent the afternoon at an estancia with my job, assisting Canadian tourists, I could see how my English was exaggerated and forced. It seemed like I was subconsciously speaking with a slight Spanish accent. But why? I guess because the majority of the time that I hear English (not counting TV), it comes from a second language speaker. So over time, I’ve forgotten what English should actually sound like and naturally correct myself when a mistake is made. Basically, I spend all day in a Spanish speaking environment and either come home and continue in Spanish or don’t speak to anyone else. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pyyX-G4keUQ bigsexpass.com sportco.org wyldgirls.com girlsmood.com usagirls.org adultmania.org adultpartners.org 69adult.org teenhopeline.org vandersteen.org

Visit The Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Plant

At the urging of a couple books and online articles I’ve read in the past months, I finally started a Bucket List, or a list of things I want to do before I die. One of the reasons for starting this list was to re-energize; to remember that feeling of being a kid and wanting with abandon because it’s inspiring. There’s a certain amount of harm we cause ourselves always being grown up and tampering our desires with reality. That’s why most of us travel: to escape the everyday and feel like we’re checking off some of those things on our own Bucket Lists. In writing out my wants I started listing things like “Gift wrap my own presents” and “Learn how to bake better” and my energy was suddenly doused by feelings of mediocrity. “Climb a mountain” and “Own a house abroad” were things that belong on a bucket list; things to be accomplished. But handicrafts and adult ed suddenly struck me as terribly mundane, and worse, even silly. What kind of a person would I be if I let my aspirations go the way of a Home Economics class and not out somewhere in the Wild Beyond? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQcTwtDxDcY vocaltoys.com lesbenerotik.org pornstash.org pornstarteam.org dvdporno.org porn-bluray.com sexfordummies.org sexyshemales.org dublinsex.org sexusa.org vivaischia.com
