Day 5&6...and 7

Okay, so I fell behind on the lats part of honeymoon! And now it is Day 2 of being back at work, so I will relive the end of our honeymoon by blogging the details!!! Friday was ZIP LINING! We left out at 8am that morning. The ride was about an hour through the local towns of DR. It was neat to see the houses, well neat and sad. It is poverty and their homes look like wood shacks...sometimes you would not know people lived there other than you would see clothes hanging out to dry. Kids are everyone and people just hanging out on the streets. It's kind of crazy. We went way into the mountains for the zip lining. Got instructions and then we were off. I of course was nervous making sure I got all of the instructions correctly and did not want to mess up. They were Double wire zip lines BTW! It was a ton of fun. I believe we went on about 12 zip lines. The last 2 we did in the rain, which was a nice touch I guess! It didn't ruin the trip atleast! On our ride out to the mountains and back we learned a lot about the Dominican. 75% of their population live off the tourist alone. Kids are not required to go to school and a lot do not. But they encourage you to so you can learn english and work. Being that most of the Dominican Speaks Spanish, but is a visited by English Speaking Americans it is in their favor to speak English. Kids run up to the busses giving the girls flowers and asking for $, scary. They don't pay attention to the tires and one actually got hurt a couple of weeks ago. Our guide yelled at them and instructed us to ignore them because $1 was not worth them getting hurt and they need to be in school. Once we got back to the resort we were starving, so we went to the buffet and grubbed down! Hurried back to room and got ready for the beach!!!! It was a beautiful day and we were not going to waste it! We ran into our friends on the way and they were headed to the pool, so we said we would meet up with them later! We enjoyed the ocean sun for awhile and then headed to the pool where we had lots of laughs and fun times with our friends from Pittsburgh and a new couple from "West Coast". The local drink, or shot I should say, is Mamajuana. Everyone told us to try it! So at the pool I ordered us all a round. OMG! It was so strong. THey make it themselves with local woods and roots or something in a bottle then they add red wine, rum, and honey and let it sit. Ours must have not been sitting that long because it was straight strong!! haha We ate at the seafood restaurant that night with Sara and Buck from Pittsburgh (We called them Pittsburgh they called us Texas) then went to the magic show and called it a night a little before midnight! That Mamajuana got us all haha Saturday was our last day. We had decided, as a married couple, that if the weather was nice we would not be having a spa day. And the weather was PERFECT so we were out in at at by 10am after breakfast! We enjoyed the beach, people watching, and walking around. You see a lot of thongs, speedos, and topless ladies. I took a nap one of the first days on the beach and when I woke up Josh's first words to me were "I say 6 speedos and 4 sets of boobies while u were sleeping" HAHA! After lunch and some more beach time we went back to the pool. Pittsburgh showed up right after us, this was a trend with the 4 of us. We literally always ended up in same spot) So we lounged at the pool for a while before heading in for a nap and showering for our last dinner. We went to the Italian food restaurant. We ran into our Canadian friends from the golf course and were seated right by them and then of course Pittsburgh was one table from us as well! The dinner was delish! Josh had Lobster Spaghetti-Amazing! and I had a Sausage Alfredo thing- dont know name bust essentialy that is what we decided it tasted like lol. Then we had after dinner drinks and conversation with the Canadaians before walking around the gift shops! It was a great relazing last evening! :) Sunday we ordered room service and enjoyed a nice breakfast and packing. We headed to the airport super early it seemed for our 345 flight. We were through everyhting and checked (which was even a slow process) by 1:00pm. We grabbed and lunch and then sat at our gate and read Catching Fire! We are so good!!! Our flight seemed a little late and Worry Wart Josh started to freak out that we were going to miss our flight home from Atlanta! I said oh we will be fine, if not nothing we can do! :) We made it, we did have to walk fast, but it wasnt anything close. We rolled home about 1am and were def happy to be back in our bed and our home. We are ready to get Rocky, catch up on laundry, and gifts put away! THen life will be a little bit back to normal, only this time as a married couple and as 1 not 2! More post of pics and wedding and pics to come soon! When I get a little chance to breath! :) Mucho Love
