Everything Is Corruption

“Is there a lot of corruption?” I asked the cab driver who was sharing insights about life in the DR. 

“No, there isn’t a lot of corruption,” he said. “Everything is corruption.” 

People here definitely deserve something better. The organizer of the conference, Ylonka, is so intense that I look soporifically Scandinavian next to her and so hard-working that I look like the deadbeat of the century. This was the best conference I’ve been to in terms of the complexity of the program, the organization and the comfort.
