The Dominican Republic
It just hit me last night that in 1 week from now, me and my trusty assistant (my wife) will be getting on a plane for Angela & Dan's wedding in the DR. I've never been and I don't speak a lick of Spanish (the posts that do have Spanish in them my wife told me what to write), I speak Japanese (though I'm half Filipino). Obvioiusly, my wife does speak Spanish (she went on an LDS mission to Uruguay) but I am pretty sure everyone will direct their speaking in Spanish to me (though I don't really think I look Latino/Mexican) and then their mouths will drop when my very Caucasian wife will open her mouth with Spanish words. Oh, the fun times.
This wedding is going to be one for the books. There is even a gallery reserved on the new site for the wedding.
This shot attached is NOT the DR as like I said, I've never been there. It was taken near Chinaman's Hat on Oahu but in my mind this is what it will look like. Blue skies, palm trees, green or blue clear water and a ton more sand than this photo...
