Trip 137, Post 4

Day 4, March 21, 2006

Another busy day. Apparently word got out that we were in Sarstun, and the number of people seeking care nearly doubled. The triage lines were long, and the pharmacy was jammed with people for the entire day. The boat ride today was still exciting on the way back, but nearly at the level of heart-palpitating thrill experienced on day 3. Today was HOT. The majority of patients did not speak Spanish, so we heavily relied on local people to translate for us, and they did a great job. Back at the Delfin Hotel this evening, we had a nice dinner (great banana bread dessert), followed by eveing devotional. Tomorrow is a repeat of today---maybe with yet more patients.
