Yes, that’s it for the lovely Dominican Republic. I’m leaving the land of perpetual summer tomorrow around noon. I’ve got a long flight ahead of me, stopping first in Newark, NJ, then over to Minneapolis-St.Paul, and finally into Great Falls at 10:45 p.m. I’ve said more than a few goodbyes already, but still have to say adios to many of the players, staff and coaches. It’s really been a wonderful experience here, but I guess all good things have to come to an end. However, I’m sure Korea will also be good, and, of course, there’s a month in Thailand and Laos to look forward to before then.

Sorry I haven’t posted much lately, and I probably won’t be posting too much until I finally arrive in Korea on the 25th of August, if everything goes according to plan. If you’ve tried to post a comment on the blog lately, I’ve had to turn off the comment feature for now–I was getting mercilessly spammed by porn sites! I’ll try to find a workaround for this or maybe I’ll go to different blogging software or to one of the online sites, like Blogger.com. More later.
