Hi readers! It has been a weekend of crazy celebration. On Saturday the DR celebrated the 166th anniversary of its independence, and today Amy and I celebrated Purim. We felt as though the whole island was celebrating with us, as everyone geared up for independence day festivities with outlandish costumes, masks, music, and celebration.
We were well-costumed for the holiday (Amy’s friends lent her a costume and Jay pulled out an old NYPD shirt), and a touch of megillah reading by Jay capped things off. Separately, Amy got in touch with the Chabad in Santo Domingo, where we hope to spend a weekend sometime soon.
Wishing you all a Happy Purim!
