we, ashley and i, have purchase the car.  i am now the owner of a 91 toyota 4runner, black, hence the name negrita.  going to pick the car up on friday was a bit of an adventure.  i know little about purchasing cars and all the documentation that goes along with it, much less doing it in this country.  so there was some confusion about the matricula, “title,” and the corresponding id number.  but we apparently got that worked out.  we finalized the acto de venta, “act of sale,” yipee!  THEN, we had a bit of car trouble.  kinda ironic that the day that i go to pick up the new car i’m buying it does want to start.  but the truth is that i wasn’t worried about it.  dominicans come to the rescue.  a mechanic going by on the street figured it out and got the car going.  i know what i’m purchasing and that’s really all part of it.  at least labor is cheap.   i’ve paid for a portion of my share of the car.  and ashley is letting me pay her back.  THANKS ASH!  so i’m still short $500.  i thought that it would feel strange driving here, but it really feels normal… like… this is want i’ll be doing now.  sorry i don’t have photos yet.  my camera is still broken, so i’ll have to wait until ashley comes back from her trip to the states to take some pictures with her camera.  pictures of negrita soon to come!

i love new beginnings.  now is a good time for a new beginning.  so i’m starting a blog.  i know i’m kinda slow to adapt to new technologies and media… not that blogging is new… but i’ve lived here in the DR for nearly two years now and i’m just deciding it time to start a blog.  i lived here for a year before ever downloading and using skype.  so hopefully this will keep me and everyone who cares to follow life here in touch.  i’ll use the blog to tell funny stories, recount the sad times, ask for prayers, post pictures, and let everyone know the needs here.  so check it from time to time if you are interested in any of those things.

welcome to the blog!
