Whisper it

When I asked my doña where the new doctor was from she whispered something to me.

"What?"- I asked

"Haiti!" -she whispers again

Ha ha. I laugh because this little old lady feels like she is telling me a secret. I'm sad because the secret is his nationality.

It's kind of funny, and somewhat sad, that even when a trilingual, doctor comes to town to help in the clinic, Dominicans will still whisper that this person came from Haiti.
