I’ve been home for almost two weeks now, and I’m still not totally readjusted to the “American way of life.” I wish I could still speak Spanish to everyone, but unfortunately nobody else in my family understands me. That said, there are a lot of things that I’m happier about at home – I can sleep in, I don’t have the stress of not understanding a language, and I can flush my toilet paper. I will always remember this experience, and if I can repeat it sometime, because it was so different and incredible compared to what I’m used to.
Since I didn’t post any pictures during my trip, I have to post all of them now. There are a lot, but I had to sort through more than 500 to get the good ones. They start at the clinic in Santa Lucia, with the doctors and the Paquete Basico – the mobile health care that our brigade took out to outlying centers for health. In the middle of those are a couple pictures of the trip we took to Rio Torola separating Honduras from El Salvador. After those pictures are some more clinic pics, then my stay in La Ceiba, where I didn’t take many pictures. One of the days that week Alex and I went with a friend of a friend Matt to see where he lived, in a community that lived on a dump. After that, I flew home. Enjoy!
This will probably be my last post for Senior Projects, so thank you all for following me and if you have any questions feel free to email me.
Muchos Gracias a todos!
