Second Clinic

This was our last day in Arequipa (me and Robin; the rest of the team will remain to do a few more clinics). Our clinic today was in Alto Cayma, after breakfast with the team at Hotel Yanahuara.

The clinic was held in a school run by a pastor, and a whole lot of school kids lined up for cleanings and haircuts.

It was another day of joy and heartbreak, giving and receiving. I managed to snap a few shots of Deanna Maxwell cleaning a mother's teeth, while her little girl just wanted to see what was going on in there! It was a sweet moment.

The day ended with a lovely birthday celebration for Luis, the church administrator. His son, who is in chef's school, prepared an amazing meal for us all, and Fio served it in style!

Robin and I leave before dawn tomorrow for Cuzco. Right now the strike is still on, but the word is that it does not affect our flight to Cuzco nor our transportation from the airport to the hotel. So we've extended our stay by one day, paid $600+ to change our flights home from Thursday to Friday, so we still should get to see Machu Pichu. Cuzco, at least.
