Clinic Blog: 2011 India 3 Clinic Blog

Our first day
Namaskar! That is "hello" in Konkani, the local dialect in Goa, India. Goa is a seaport city on the southwestern coast of India. It was settled in 1498 by Portuguese explorers. The strong Portuguese influence can be seen in it's culture, language, and architechture. After two days of travelling, the India3 team has assembled here. After orientation we received our room assignments and began to explore our new home for the next two weeks. We used today as a rest day to get acclimated to the time change. We can't wait to meet our clinic partners, our volunteers, and most of all our patients.
