It’s always good to get back to the ILAC mission. This is my fourth trip, and this place has really grown on me. I’m never quite prepared for the heat and humidity though.
My luggage is lost — I’m now 3 for 4 — four times to the DR three times with lost luggage. But, as I said to one of the students, I can go the the store and buy new stuff, but that is not the case with the people we are profiling. When I am traveling in the developing world I am always more aware of my privilege, and more grateful for the life I have at home. Maybe that is part of the reason I keep coming back.
Tomorrow we find out what kind of film makers we have recruited. I think it will be an exiting and challenging day.
