Day off blues

We got a lovely day off today at Hotel Visa Lodge. The organization coordinator decided it was safe for us to leave in a group and the hotel is a 4 min drive from the hospital. Lots of pool time, beer, and naps! My mother will be happy to know I did 3 rounds of SPF 70. :) Unfortunately, they dyed the pool green and now we have green hair and suits. 

View of Port-au-Prince from the pool. The airport is pretty close out there.

Team members relaxing. There are a total of 17 of us volunteering for the week. Mixture of 1 Doctor, 3 residents, many nurses, 2 EMTs, and 1 speech therapist.

This little guy can see into our kitchen area of the residence hall. He keeps motioning us to come over so I did...with my camera.
