Every New Years is a time of celebration, some people go to parties and bring in the new year with friends and loved ones. Others don’t make a big deal over it and just treat it as another day. In my case, I love bringing in the New year with my family and friends. Usually we have small gatherings in our house and we all wait for the New Year together as a family, after it hits 12 my cousins and I meet up with our friends and go to a party or a club and our parents either go to church or have a small dinner. This new year was very exciting for me because my grandmother was supposed to fly in and celebrate with us. When my mother received the news that my grandma wouldn’t be able to make it we decided to book our flights to leave after the new year to at least begin the year with her and the rest of our family. It was so spontaneous which made the trip so much better. When we finally made it to D.R it was so much fun, I got to see my family and meet my two baby cousins as well. What made my stay in D.R even better was that my good friend decided to come as well, being that were both from the same city in the Dominican Rep. just made everything a bit better. The whole time I was there it was just so much fun I got to ride my brothers horse which at a point I was terrified of since last time I rode him I had a bad accident. Finally he got used to me and we had a pleasant time together being that I didn’t fall off lol. Being that I do live in the US i gravitate towards my cousins here more because we are always together but when arriving to DR i realized how cool my other cousins are too! My stay there was short being that school was right around the corner but I will def go and visit during the summer time again.
