4, 3, 2, 1 August 22, 2019 Day 14   Wake-up, work-out, eat-up. That’s how our morning went again today! The only deviation was the delayed arrival of the coffee, much to everyone’s dismay. We practiced our adaptability today, like all the other days. When we arrived at the hospital at 7:30am, we had four […]

Go Fish August 21, 2019 Day 13   This morning was running for some, sleeping for others, and breakfast for all. No over-sleepers like yesterday (*cough* Dr. Gorlick *cough*)!

Day 4: Murphy Strikes Breakfast was like the calm before the storm; no one truly knew what was going to happen, but we knew it would be a busy day.

Day 3: Clinic Queues Another morning, another breakfast, another bus ride to the clinic, however, instead of our usual bus, we had a much more entertaining situation. The previous night, our normal bus driver wasn’t there, so someone else drove us to the hotel. The problem was, the bus we were taking was significantly smaller […]

Day 2: Exactly how much did we pack? The morning was pretty typical to trips in the past; some got up early and worked out, some took care of emails and everything, and others slept in until the last possible minute before the standard team breakfast, where we’d discuss the tentative plan for the day.
