The beginning

MASIN_travel02

We arrived at our apartment in Santo Domingo about 5:30 a.m. yesterday after three gate changes and four hours of flight delays in Atlanta, one lost bag upon arrival and lots of airplane peanuts. So it went pretty smoothly overall.

During the next three weeks, this group of 13 University of Nebraska-Lincoln student journalists, led by professor Bruce Thorson, will be exploring issues in the Dominican Republic.

On this blog you’ll find updates from our stories, which range from child prostitution in Boca Chica to the citizenship issues, looked at through the border town Elias Pina and various bateyes throughout the country, to cock fighting in Santo Domingo. We hope you enjoy and learn something from following this blog, and  after today you won’t have to look at pictures of us anymore.
