Ice Cream and Beer, oh and Clinic Day 4 :)

overcast 92 °F

4/16 9pm

Clinic went well, we ran a bit long. I was asked to give a short 15-20 min lecture to our interpreters on ABCs (Airway, Breathing, Circulation, choking & causes of unresponsiveness) It was fun, but pretty tough to fit into such a small time allotment. Someone took a couple of short movies, I’ll put them on Facebook when I’m back. J On the way home we decided to all meet at an ice cream shop and have ice cream and beer (for some). Spending time with our Haitian interpreters when we don’t have to work quickly is a real treat. They are loving, strong spirited, beautiful people. Taylor has a laugh and smile that would touch any human. On the way home from our snack a motorcyclist wrecked right next to us. So the crew said, Medic your up. I hoped out of the back of the truck and evaluated both guys, they were fine, I could tell by the way they went down that they just slid. No real road rash because they were wearing thick jeans. Got them up, then we were off again. Not two minutes later our front car from our caravan drove in and out of a large hole that caused a flat tire. Our handy drivers had a new tire on in approximately 10 minutes. We have some skilled drivers!
