Personal Narrative: My Trip To Dominican Republic

Improved Essays
This summer I was very fortunate to go to Dominican Republic. Before this trip I haven’t visited Dominican Republic in over five years, so I was pretty eager to visit. When I first stepped out of the plane, I took in a breath. I feel that the air over there smells so different since many people over there burn their garbage, I actually like that smell.

That little restaurant would be so packed we were would have to be waiting for like thirty minutes for them to even take our orders, but it was totally worth
