Moca Night

On Thursday evening, fellow volunteers Sabrina and Heather came from the northern outskirts of Moca to check out my site here on the south side of town. After sharing a zapote smoothie and oohing and ahhing a bit over my accomodations, we got a motoconcho into town where they did some grocery shopping and picked up some teaching supplies. Next it was off to Cofey, the nice bar we went to two months ago during my volunteer visit, for some drinks and conversation.

Next stop was Sabrina's house in Las Lagunas where we passed some time by candlelight with some of Sabrina's neighbors and put on a movie until we were falling asleep. At about four thirty, I awoke to Heather's dog, Mikey barking. I heard some doors open and shut and when I finally got up at six, it turns out Heather and Mikey had gone.


  1. Charlie that was the weirdest most awkwardest post ever. Why couldn't you say we were so awesome and my house was super sweet and Moca is gorgeous? I guess I shouldn't complain, you mentioned me in your blog! Yay!

  3. Hey Charles!

    Congratulations on your service in the Dominican Republic, it looks like you are going to have an amazing time!

    I'm glad you like the Unofficial Handbook, I hope it's been helpful to you and thank you for promoting it. On this page ( would you mind not showing the whole handbook though, so that more people are encouraged to buy it to read it in its entirety and that way help fund Peace Corps projects around the world?
