It's happened. The unthinkable. I'm finally at Heri hospital:) We've been here a couple of days now and have started to settle in. The area is really pretty. It's up in the hills only a few kilometers from the Burundi border and also fairly close to the Rwandan border. The weather's nice and it's started to rain some each day as they say we're going into the rainy season.
The job description that we've acquired is that we're going to be helping a contractor who's coming from Canada soon, working with the hospital's computer system, and getting a chance to watch and then hopefully help with surgeries taking place. The other notable thing that has been happening is Neil and I buying, cooking, and eating our own food. Quite the experience. We've been trying to remember just how our mothers used to cook stuff. All the times I should have paid more attention while living at home:)
So far we've just been organizing different areas in the maintenance department and helping sort out and organize the medical supplies in their storage room.
Well I've been sitting here a while (oh that's another thing, the fact that we have internet is amazing) and should let Neil on. You can probably read more about what we've done on his blog.
