Ok. So here we are, settling in. I've spent most of the weekend cleaning our nice and new apartment. The 24-7 scrubbing started on Friday when we moved in and hasn't really stopped. That is until last night.
Because last night was the Super Bowl.
Because last night was the first night of Carnival.
And mostly because last night was the premier of Downton Abbey, season three, episode six.
It was pretty eventful.
I actually didn’t watch the Super Bowl. I was to busy crying my eyes-
yeah, if you watched Downton you know.
It's really pretty cool. Some of the teachers slash staff here at Doulos have a little Downton Club and they get together and eat and watch and laugh at Dame Maggie Smith.  It's a good time.
Anyway, as i mentioned before, Carnival started last night. Up here in small town, DR, it isn't as wild, but that doesn't mean that the music wasn't way louder then normal or traffic was easy. The entire Avanida (main road) was blocked off and let me tell you right now, the Avanida is a really, really busy road. Pretty much everyone has to drive or walk on it to get anywhere and its the only way to get into town besides this scary dirt road that's only big enough for one car. Yeah. But that's the way everyone had to go. I didn't really go farther than down the street last night but pretty much everyone I've talked to had a (or multiple) near-death experience in the traffic last night. No one is actually even hurt but there are three more Sundays before Carnival is over.
Thanks for reading!
