Made it to Freetown...

I left Holland Sunday afternoon, flew to London and met up with Harriet and Justin at the airport. Our flight was the only flight out of Gatwick after 930pm so the place was pretty deserted and the stores closed early. Oh well, my bag was full enough anyway. Fortunately there were only 37 people on the flight so I had three seats to myself! I can’t complain.

We arrived in Freetown early Monday morning and spent most of the morning and early afternoon sleeping and unpacking. Tuesday it was back to work. It was a good start…busy but not too hectic. I ended up seeing 48 patients…one of which needed some suturing done as shown above. At the end of the day I walked across the street to greet some of my friends there. It was fun to hang out with some of the kids and take their pictures. They loved it.

The staff at the clinic was very excited to see me again as were some of the patients and their parents who had been to the clinic before. Made it feel good to be back.

Anyway, I’m back in Freetown. Back to work. I’ll be posting on my blog more regularly again and I’ll be sure to write a bit about my vacation too!
