I've been tagged!

I was tagged by Observations of Africa.

The rules are:
1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about himself or herself.
3. At the end of the post, the player then tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

What was I doing 10 years ago:
Teaching English as a second language at ICPR Junior College in Mayagüez, Puerto Rico.

Five things on my To Do List today:

It is good to hear that you've been to Cap-Haitian. I was there a year a go on a mission trip. The trip went well.
