Jan 9, 2017

IMG_1173 1/6/17 Arrived at Logan Airport at 7:00 pm. Terminal C JetBlue. Mertie and Fred Potter and Sarah Smoller were quickly spotted. Our group began to gather. There are 20 of us total. We found a scale and weighed our bags. 50lbs max….nothing more allowed. Overweight suitcases were offloaded in search of a waiting underweight partner. Bags checked. Quick dinner for all and off to gate C34. Fred hung a small green background and took headshots of all. Quick group photo and onto the plane. Flight departed 10:05 pm, leaving frosty Beantown for heavenly humid Santo Domingo. Arrived Santo Domingo 3:15 am after a some what turbulent flight. Zipped through customs thanks to Margie and her experience. Onto school bus….after loading approx 50 bags into back. 1.5 hr drive to La Romana-Good Samaritan facility. Everyone was happy to get to bed except for the rooster outside our window at 5 am!
