Congratulations on your mission call. My son is currently serving in the Santo Domingo East mission. He loves the people there and Pres Johns is wonderful. My son said that he was glad he brought a good backpack. He also said that cotton garments were much better than polyester of any kind. It is very hot and humid.
He had a bike in his first area, but just paid money into a bike fund. The missionaries do not buy their own bikes now. He now drives but that is pretty scary also with the traffic there. He was a pretty picky eater before he left, but now he likes alot of the food. He does go to McDonalds and Pizza Hut on P-days.
The missionaries have a maid who cooks and does the laundry. You will have "bucket" showers and his last hot shower was at the MTC. Please feel free to send me E-mail if you have any further questions. There is an E-mail group of "missionary moms" who share ideas. Let me know if your parents are interested. You will receive letters through the Pouch but
missionaries now send letters home through the regular Dominican mail. That takes about 2-3 weeks -
Good luck! You will love it.
