It was, but it was also challenging on many levels - mentally, emotionally, spiritually, physically - I really wish that we would have had the means to do more for all of those people. We barely just scratched the surface of a very deeply seeded problem over there.That must have been amazing.
Yeah, I just had to ignore the lingering thought in the back of my mind that they could collapse at any point in time. But we crossed many of them, and they seemed to hold up!What a beautiful country! I would have problems with those bridges, though.
I found the organization and requested approval for credits towards graduation for my time there and got it My school has been very supportive of all of my travels, and most of this last year was spent doing international electives...that is a passion of mine! I spent a month in India and three in Africa. And received credit for all of it. In my opinion, more student doctors whould do this type of work because you really are forced to think on your feet and improvise to work with what you have in extreme situations.How did this opportunity happen, Cadey? Is it like doctors w/o borders?
What incredible pics.. you'll never forget that time of your life, for sure.
