Day Seven: Last Community day

We went to San Marcos today, a community about 45 minutes outside San Ignacio, to set up our last clinic. We had a late start to the day, but we ended up seeing about 45 patients. On the way home, we stopped at a Dairy Bar in Spanish Lookout, a Mennonite community, and had ice cream after our long and hot day of work. This evening we went out for dinner for the last time here in San Ignacio. Though we are all happy to get home, some of us are equally sad to leave. The people we have met and the lives that have touched us have truly made an impression. Belize is certainly an easy place to fall in love with.

Tomorrow we wake up bright and early (more like dark and early) to leave for Belize City at 6 am. From the City we will take a ferry boat to the island Caye Caulker where we will enjoy a day of fun and snorkeling. I apologize for the lack of pictures, it has been a long day and a late night, and considering our early wake up call in the morning, I should get some rest!

Hasta maƱana!

We stopped at the Cayo Deaf Institute quickly on the way to San Marcos; this was the view.

I didn't get the best version of this photo on my camera, and we are  missing two members of the group due to some sickness, but this is the San Marcos group with the doctors: Dr. Cuellar and Dr. Yorleny. In Belize, the medical resources are not nearly as convenient as those in the states. The doctors here are trained to be very resourceful. Their knowledge of healthcare is so broad and we were so lucky to learn from them.
