Cabarete was excellent. If I had known that Cabarete was as fun as it is, and as cheap as it was I would have been going there every single weekend since the day I got here. We had such a good time!
We got there Saturday and after we checked in at the hotel and stuff, we went to Lax. Apparently that is THE place to be there because even when we weren't there, we still were. Anyway, we had fun at Lax. That first night we ran into a couple of friends from here and what would become our little group for the weekend was complete.
Anyway, that night we danced for what felt like forever. We partied for so long that on Sunday we overslept and missed the surfing and kite surfing competitions. That really sucked. But whatever, we were out in the sun tanning and hanging out. The water was beyond cold so we didn't really go there...That night we partied again with some other friends we made but this time, unlike the night before, we went to bed before the sun was about to come out.
On Monday, we finally made it to the competition, though we did show up late. We caught part of the finals. That was so cool. While we were there, I thought a lot about Angie and how she is so into that kind of stuff. I wish I could surf. I am so gonna' learn...
In any case, we were there for a while. It was a great day for water-anything. We didn't stay for the whole thing though. After a while we went back to our favorite spot and we had our little party there. Lunch was at Jose O'Shay's and although it's not my kind of food, I have to say that their food is pretty good (and that name cracks me up).
I like being a beach bum. This weekend I didn't open my books at all. Something pretty miraculous did happen though... most of the people we were hanging out with were either doctors or med students. That had never happened to me before. Anyway, I think that because they are so hyped up about being doctors, they somehow got me to believe that maybe being a doctor could be way cool. I had never partied with doctors before. I thought they were kind of dull actually. These guys, however, totally proved me wrong. They are like warriors!
I have always said that Dominican Republic is a really great place to visit, but that living here sucks. Everytime I go somewhere this cool, I think to myself "yes, it's a cool place to visit and living here does suck BUT living here can be cool if you know where to go"
I am so going back and if you people haven't come to our humble little country, you should totally come visit. It can really be a lot of fun...Just bring your sunblock so you don't end up like me: sunburnt in places I didn't know the sun could reach :)
