Well I am back. I am also extremely tired and my allergies are heralding that this fall in Boston is going to be a motha phucker if I do not stick closely to my one Zyrtec a day habit. In the H I could skip a day, but here NOOOO WAY... NO HOW!! I sometimes have to take it twice.
Anyway so much has gone on while I’ve been on my little holiday from the country and my blog. So I am going to try to keep this short and give the highlights or lowlights or lights to what’s been happening in my world.
Punta Cana was beautiful. I mean it was gorgeous and hot. The plane ride there was great. I flew through Philly, I thought about you Keith but the layover was only for an hour. I must say from the plane Philly looked like a industrial jungle for real. It was cool. The flight from Philly to Punta Cana was great I ended up getting there an hour early, which was great because if I hadn’t I would have missed my bus. I don’t even want to think about how exactly I would have made that trek out to the resort, because it was quite a long bus ride there.
The resort was nice. It was your typical all in inclusive deal. There were four hotels in one resort and most of the people there were not American, very nice and international. The people were nice and of course beautiful. I got to use my Spanish which was very limited. I could understand fine mostly because I could remember what enough words meant to figure out what the people were talking about via context clues. I made the mistake of speaking the little I knew and then was over run by too much Spanish to understand.
I was asked by several of the people working on the resort if I was Dominican. I thought that was funny. When not at wedding festivities I was on the beach. We even manage to go out to club off resort. That was fun. The beach was the best and yes it was top optional. After hanging on the beach I could totally see why people go topless. The beach made me wish I had packed a two piece. Everyone had on a two piece I MEAN everyone tall, skinny, fat, short, old, young, sick, fine, stretched marked, smooth skinned, tanned, super pale. It was very liberating.
The time sitting on the beach was great and reflective and helped me make a lot of decisions with clarity.
My phone didn’t work which I actually liked being cut off from civilization, although returning home felt a bit cast awayish. It seemed so much had gone on in the short time I was away. I mean we had CNN so we weren’t completely shut off but there were a few things that I needed to catch up.
The wedding was really beautiful and it was cool to be part of such a nice event. There isn’t enough organization in my crew to do a group anything, so it was nice to piggy back on this one.
There are tons of pictures but as you may have noticed I very RARELY put pictures on this blog. I can count maybe 4 times and all have been in the last few months. I have my reasons as to why I do not post pictures on this blog, but you know that’s AB4AD. If you are really interested in seeing them just hit me up and I’ll send you the link to my pics
So how about that DNC. I thought it was a good convention. I am now interested in seeing what McCain is gonna do. I know he just announced Sarah Palin governor of Alaska as his running mate. Interesting.
Well I actually have to get back to work. I hope everyone has a nice holiday! Feel free to share your Labor Day plans if you want. Me, I will be washing and unpacking and packing summer clothes up and catching up on all the blogs I missed this week. I got a barbeque invite so I might do that to. Anyway, hope you guys have a happy Labor Day. Talk to you guys later.
