Last week we went to the Dominican Republic to unwind for a few days in between exams and work projects. A. kitesurfed and I read and walked on the endless beach. The water was warm and the mojitos lovely. We stayed on the North shore where it was pretty quiet unless the wind was strong, and then tens of Israelis, Italians and Britons would appear with their gear, and the sky would be dotted with kites. Back in Toronto now - New York next week.
