Medical Mission

March 20th, 2007

This coming Saturday I'm heading out to Santiago to participate in what Peace Corps likes to call a medical mission. A group of doctors and nurses is coming to administer free eye examinations and operations to Dominicans in need. No, I will not be doing eye surgery. A team of volunteers which includes yours truly will serve as translators between the doctors and the patients. We'll probably leave the sticking of the needle in the eye to the professionals, but I'll muster up my best Spanish to say "le pica un poco cuando ponga la aguja en su ojo." Good times.

The mission lasts a week and I won't be around during that time. Don't worry, the newspaper delivery will be on hold and a muchacho is coming every day to trample the plants and neglect the cat. Life as usual will continue! Peace.
