Today is Wednesday and it has been rather interesting. It started storming last night and the power was out when we woke up. No power means that we had no hot water. I had to take a cold shower…it was invigorating!!! We left the camp for clinics but the route we normally take over the river was flooded from the storms.
We had to detour back up the mountain and take a different way to the clinic. It was only supposed to take us 20 minutes and it ended up taking over an hour, but we made it safe and sound. The Clinic was in Los Flores community, which is close to a school. We saw 185 patients! The most we saw all week! We stayed at the clinic till close to 5pm because we still had people waiting to be seen. Some had been waiting since 6 in the morning. I got to treat my first gunshot wound.
We were all exhausted from the long day. We got back to camp, ate dinner and all went to our rooms to relax. It had been raining all day and everything outside was wet. Jeremiah, Mario and Ceasar all had a brilliant idea to jump into a baptism pool in the middle of the camp. It was the entertainment of the evening. The water was dirty and ice cold not to mention that it was raining out.
After that excitement, me Jordahn and Jeremiah all watched some TV shows on my laptop and the rest of the girls enjoyed some reading.
