First Clinic (May 16, 2009)

Our first clinic was today in Villa del Triunfo. Vic, Dianna, and I cleaned teeth, Dee shampooed and cut hair, and Robin and Linda cut hair, all day long--sixty-two heads, I think the count was! (Oh, and as pictured, Fio, the daughter of the church's administrator, Luis, and women's leader, Yvonne, also pitched in later in the day when she got off work!) And over 140 people had their teeth cleaned.

We found out tonight that there is a strike scheduled in Cuzco and Machu Pichu for Tuesday and Wednesday, which would prevent us from being able to fly to Cuzco Tuesday as we had planned and see Machu Pichu on Wednesday. Don is working with the travel agent to see what we can do, maybe stay an extra day and do Machu Pichu on Thursday. We'll see.
