Puerto Plata

I rode in a limousine today for the first time in my life, from the airport through the dirt-poor town of Puerto Plata and to our resort. I’m here with Steve, our friend Tim, my friend Cheryl, and four of Tim’s family members (TFMs). In the limo they were pouring champagne to celebrate our vacation. I had a couple sips and set my glass back in the holder, then the TFMs made fun of me for not being a big drinker, so I just laid it out there during the ensuing pause. “I’m pregnant.” Tim’s eyes popped out of his head and was speechless for a whole minute. I love sharing my news! The Dominican Republic is a beautiful country, but it's not that safe so I probably won't venture off the property (even in search of larimar).
