Not too long after we arrived, our friend came to visit us. He was with us last month. Manuel went with him outside to prevent him from taking our equipment when we were not looking. I just love Manuel's smile in this photo.
We met one lady that was near her store. She told me that she had to work but wanted to come for an eye exam..........I told her to come on down and we would see her right away. She looked back at the people in her store, waved her hand high at them and yelled, "See you later! I am going to the clinic!" And off we went!
We had a sign for the clinic but wanted to attach it to the building. Manuel went to buy some big screws to mount the sign with. The ladder he borrowed was not tall enough so I offered to back the truck up and use that to reach above the door.

I also talked to him about doing an IVAA/ Pap class for the ladies. I asked several people about how many members they have here and the number varied between 200 and 350........so, we are looking at doing a class from 9am to 10am and then doing the regular clinic. If we can get enough interest stirred, we will return and do the special clinic for them. I am really excited about this opportunity.
When we were walking back to clinic after lunch, we saw a huge pig scratching his back on a wall. Manuel decided that he would lend him a hand and the pig did not mind it at all!
Every day there is something to learn and I enjoy it very much!
Tomorrow, our clinics will be closer to town.......one in Chichi and one in Lemoa.
