Summer as a kid was great. I spent all my summers in the Dominican Republic running around, eating fruits straight from the tree. My grandfather had cows, pigs, chickens, rabbits and more. Being a city boy I’m thankful to have experienced milking a cow, chasing chickens and hunting lizards. Above is a drawing of Emilio. Emilio owns the minimarket in front of my grandfather’s house. We would run over and he would always give us soda pops, it was the best. I still visit the Dominican Republic, but it will never be what is was. No worries, no responsibilities, just pure ol’ childhood bliss.
