New Clinic in Chuicaca

We had a new clinic today in an area called, Chuicaca.  I know, after a while, all of the clinics seem to sound the same......but there is some difference, however slight it may be.

Lisa, Cecy, Sandra, Maria, Manuel, Gaspar and I all headed out this morning at 0710, in two trucks.
There were a couple of dental patients waiting and a couple that wanted dental cleanings.  Lisa and I had to wait until we had some patients arrive.

It is a pretty view from where we held clinic.

After we waited for about 30 minutes, Cecy and I walked to market to drum-up some business.  It was market day so there were a lot of people in the streets and in the market.  We talked to several people and store-owners, giving them a personal invitation to visit the clinic.

Sandra and Maria with their first patient.

Gaspar had heard an announcement from a van that they were selling Gasparin icecream.  When Cecy and I were walking in the market, we found it!

We bought some to take back and share.  They had flavors of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. They were pretty good!

We were served lunch and it was very good.  They had some great chili!  It had a little bite to it and also had a great flavor.

We will be going to this clinic on a monthly basis.

When we arrived back in Chichi, we met up with Kemmel.  He was going to install a stove in one of our neighbors home.  Lisa and I went to help carry the materials.

In the morning, I will travel to Antigua for the night and then on to Guatemala City.  It is time to apply for a new passport and this will be the easiest way to do it.
