The first clinic day saw for a fairly light load, which I think was a blessing in disguise. The group is a wonderful mix of personalities and skill levels, so trying to find a balance of workload in the clinic was somewhat of a challenge.
But never fear- it all worked out in the end. Let’s hope for a lot more people today!! The local Clube de Leones passed out tickets for exams and hardly none of those persons showed up. Wednesday and Thursday is in a different area of the city that typically has a heavier patient load.
But my favorite part so far, admittedly, was not in clinic… aside from the woman who grabbed me, hugged me, and kissed me on the cheek… it was when I got to make some tortillas! It’s been a ton of fun and I am so excited that I get to serve these people and also the students who are really excited to learn!
