hello nathan, I'm dominican and live in Wa state, the spanish spoke by mexican is a little bit different,you will love santo domingo ist is awesome, I miss my homeland big time, the mail is not as good as the states so have your parents send you everything separate like shoes,in two parts so they don't get "lost" also have them put pictures of christ on the outside , people there are very religious and won't mess with anything that has jesus faces on it.
this is the first time i post here, so sorry about the first message, wasn't sure how this thing worked.
: I just recieved my mission call the Santa Domingo West Mission. I live in Southern California. I'm totally excited, but what's this going to be like? How comparable is the spanish spoken by the Dominicans to the spanish I hear spoken here (mostly by immigrants from Mexico). Is anything a MUST HAVE as far as what to bring is concerned? What's the mail cituation like? How difficult would it be for me to get any letters or packages from home. Any help you guys can give me would be much apreciated. I report to the MTC Nov. 10'th I'm totally excited.
