We just had a half day today, doing small cases, and then packing and loading.

For the week we did sixty surgeries and almost two hundred consults.

In the afternoon a small group of us went with some of our local hosts on a boat trip through a mangrove swamp and out into the ocean, where we were taken to a spectacular beach.

The Dominican is a poor, but beautiful country. The people were so nice to us. They were so grateful. I am grateful to them. Trips like these help all of us. They remind you of what the world, of what we all should be about.

I hope to always come back.
