Remembering the DR...

Hello DR-1ers. As a fluke, I just logged on again today after many months away!

I returned from Cabrera last year, broke and a bit broken after a nasty bout of Typhoid Fever and Brucelosis and a sad break up from my fiance...many of you may not know me or remember me, but I remember you all so well!

I still stay in touch often with some friends from Cabrera, and would love to impart some of my (ahem) wisdom (we will use the term loosely ;) for anyone traveling that way! Also, I used to live in Cabarete with my daughter prior to that.

Anyway, a small update: I returned to Canada where my former CEO called me and asked if I'd consider coming back to my old company...now I am happily the Director of Marketing and Communications for a Biotech firm here in Ottawa. The fiance ended up following me home and surprising me - on Valentine's Day, to boot! - with red roses and an epic love letter...we were married in September. I'm now 8 months' pregnant and ready to pop, and happily settled back into my Canadian life :)

For those from Ottawa: the weather is finally turning to Spring after a snow storm LAST WEEK!

I miss Cabrera and the DR some days...the friends, the music, Chori Pan's breakfast sandwiches, Playa Grande...but I'm happy to be home! If ever you need an introduction to Cabrera, a beautiful little nook in the DR, I will be very ahppy to tell you all about it :)

Hi Dv8!!!! I am all better except for this baby taking up all my space! :) Yes, I was teaching at the (ahem) 'International' school in Cabrera for a short time! We lived right on a field and apparently it was the Queso Tipo Crema that made me sick! :( I still crave it. hahah
