Clinic Blog: 2012 The Gambia Clinic Blog
May 15, 2012
Today has been a looooong day. We all began our day of travel early Sunday morning and will arrive in The Gambia Monday night. We spent 4 hours in the Newark airport finding and then getting to know each other before our 7 hour flight to Brussels, Belgium, where we had another 6 hours to spend together and are also waiting anxiously to meet our European team members before the last leg of our journey. Team members spent their time shopping for Belgium chocolates and other souvenirs to bring home to friends and family. Tim Green was able to fill us in on some of the details of Clinic life in The Gambia as he was part of the first team to visit The Gambia in June of 2011. We also enjoyed Belgium chocolates that truly melted in your mouth courtesy of Bruce Neumann and of course we had to sample the Belgium beer. Good times can always be expected when traveling with OneSight teams and this trip is starting out very good and we have only just begun.
The reward of course after this very long day of flying and waiting and then more flying and waiting ...will be getting to do what we enjoy most.....hopefully getting a good nights sleep and then up early to begin The Gambia clinic and start helping the people of Gambia see as well as become self sufficient and sustainable in vision care.
