I am back in Canada,
sleeping in my nice comfy bed that does not have fleas, with access to fresh
running water, and indoor flush toilets; so I am in the perfect position to
reflect back on my 10 days in Guatemala.
The irony is not to be lost - how we can accomplish so much in
conditions that are "not to North American Standards," is amazing to me.
Greetings from Guatemala! This is my first time in Latin America and so far I have loved every minute!Funny enough, the most difficult part of the trip was leaving the Calgary Airport!Picture 24 hockey bags filled with dental equipment and supplies carried by 8 dentists, hygienists, dental assistants, and other support volunteers; each bag being hand-searched.From this point it has been smooth sailing (with the exception of the earthquake that shook me awake this morning).
