Hospital tour, etc.........
After the tour, we walked back to the students' home away from home @ Roberto's to debrief. With our feet in the pool, the debriefing session was a far cry than our debriefings in Canada. Then, it was time to organize and plan for the next day. We will be seeing approximately 60 kids at the kindergarten school. Emma and Jeanie led the discussion as this was their Spring Term project. An agenda was planned, goodie bags were organized, and details about a return visit to the school in our last week here was discussed. Danielle, Kellie, and I ventured over to Entreamigos a few hours later to find out more about the nutrition seminar that was scheduled. The picture that you see of a blank space with a kitchen will be where our last dental clinic will be established.
We ended the day by walking over to Eva's kitchen for some good, very affordable eating. My meal of chorizo and carne pelliscadas (shown in picture) was less than $5.00 CAD. Eva's granddaughter, also named Eva provided entertainment for our group. She danced and clapped and mainly ended up on Emma's lap. Today is another busy day of school visit, excursion to La Pineta (25 minutes north of San Pancho) to purchase supplies and do some banking, and setting up a health promotion table at the local plaza when we return to San Pancho. There is high probability that the Bassetts may be dropping by later this afternoon for a visit, as they are vacationing in a nearby village.
