Arrival

Port-au-Prince, Haiti.  

 I arrived safe and sound! It's been a long day of travel and orientation and I am SO TIRED. I got my schedule for the week and am luckily working day shift all week. I volunteered myself to work in ICU and pediatrics...both dreams are coming true....YIKES! More to come on that... 

My first thought on Port-au-Prince is that is reminds me so much of Navotas in the Philippines. The same faces, smells, roadside thrift stores, pain, desperation, heat...the list goes one. I feel like I've been here before.

View over the hospital. The square footage is small but there are so many units and clinics inside it. The tour of it took a long time.
