postcards from the DR, day 1

Actually, I'm writing to you live from day 2, but these postcards were my little project last night. Shots from the first day, in Barahona, near the border of Haiti. Now back in Santo Domingo until Friday, then back to cold and rainy (and snowy, apparently) Seattle.

I really like my job. Let me rephrase that: I really like my job. I'm traveling with a bunch of characters on this trip, and I'm not sure if I'm at liberty to tell the stories I'm hearing, but I've been thoroughly entertained. Sheila Walsh is giving up-to-the-minute Twitter updates — every time I turn around, she's on her iPhone, so if you're curious about what we're up to, check her out.

One year ago today, everything changed. So thankful for so much.
