Day 8: first clinic day of a new week
After 2 days of touring and relaxing, we were fully ready for our second week of clinic. But our patients were even more ready... and in fact when we arrived at the clinic around 8 am (like we do every morning) we found a HUGE line of people already waiting. We couldn't believe what we saw - take a look at the pictures below! But we were not discouraged, and we jumped into the task one patient at a time.
We must say that patients have been very pleasant to work with, and they all petiently waited for their turn. Some of them stayed in line for hours, standing, no matter how old or sick. Many of them carried babies with them, one as young as 3 days.
At the end of the day, the number of patients rounded up to 1,500 - we are totally going strong, day after day!
And nothing better to relax than a special treat! We all went to the historical center of Puebla for a typical mexican dinner in one of the city's most scenograhic restaurants. We all sat outside on a rooftop overlooking the Zocalo square and enjoying an early summer nite. Company was great, food was yummy, music was fun, tequila was on each table...
After that, it was time to go back to the hotel and charge our batteries... big days are laying ahead!
