We are starting to get excited about our trip to the beautiful DR (December 2008). Our only problem now is the flight to/from the DR. For us, it is a flight of 7.5 hours each way [our UK friends face a longer flight, but this is atill a long flight] - not including the 4 hours it takes to get to the airport in Vancouver [btw - we have the 2010 Winter Olympics]. So how do people occupy ther time - the movie is lame and only 2 hours, the food is inedible (we learned that you can bring your own meals), quarters are cramped, I can't sleep...so it is like a tortured sleepless night - how do others pass the time? What am I missing? Thanks to all.
Peace and love.
