10 Days in Dominica, Day Ten


Day Ten- What will you miss when you leave Dominica?

When my time in Dominica is over, I am certain that I will look back at it fondly. I won't remember the heat or the everyday annoyances. What I will miss is the way of life, the mornings at Rituals drinking coffee with good friends, how easy it was to get from place to place. I will miss walking to restaurants, sitting outside in January, and really appreciating good food when I get it.

In America, I won't recognize people everywhere I go and most people won't understand what it's like to be the wife of a med-student. I will miss the closeness of friends and constant social interaction. I'll miss the days at the pool and the beach, the amazing scenery, and the sound of the ocean during yoga. There is something special about the pace of life here and the slow flow from day to day.  I look forward to finding more things to miss during my last six months here.
