Jungle Medicine

Just returned from practicing true guerilla medicine/nursing. None of the luxuries of yesterday. Gone was the cool comfortable ( not air conditioned)church building with a separate building for waiting patients. Today we were sent to another tent city. Our 'clinic' was under a tarp and our pharmacy inside a parked tap-tap. We saw many more patients with totally different problems. Our open air tarp covered clinic was hot and dusty and crowded. Internet went out, will have to finish this post at a later time.
