MaryEllen's Trip to the Dominican Republic

My friend MaryEllen (from Canada) took a trip to the Dominican Republic to, as she puts it, "to experience their culture and experience the different kinds of social injustices around there... and how they deal with them and what kind of things they do... and how we can take that and bring it home and work on things here."

Her blog on the subject is really quite interesting.

It was pretty refreshing for me to go and read a little bit about another culture that lived differently. We get so caught up with America, America, America. (Or Canada, maybe.) It's all about us, how we live and what we do. Well, there are other people out there, and they live very differently, and we can learn from them. We can teach them, and we can learn from them too. As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.
