roads are winding and very steep. The Guatemalan's are very aggressive drivers,
there were a few times that I thought we may go over the mountain's edge! We arrived at night and was met by veterinarian (who is a part of Vets Without Borders) and she showed
us to our hotel. The conditions are poor, our hotel is more like a hostel. There were 3
double beds, with futon mattress on plywood and one old wickety desk, covered with
cement walls. Very little bugs here, and have not seen any bed bugs, so it could be
worse. Our shower is electric, and does not get warm, let alone hot, so we are definitely
getting cold showers. We get up each morning at 6:30 am and head to a house where
these ladies feed us breakfast. They also bring lunch to us and we return back to their
house for dinner. The food has been pretty delicious, chicken, beef and
banana pancakes, mmmm. We head over to the auditorium for a start to the day.
are poor, under-weight, infested in fleas and filthy. Vaccines go on all day and we do
surgeries in the morning so they are awake to go home at 5 when we close the doors till
the next day. We definitely have language barrier as they speak two languages,
Spanish and MAM. . The surgeries are tricky as there is only limited drugs for anesthetic and no oxygen, but everything has been going well. I am excited to say we have spayed and neutered 52 dogs at this point and vaccinated 273 dogs and cats. We do have one more day of vaccines and surgeries tomorrow, but then ending Saturday with inventory for Vets Without Borders trip in 2014. The trip has been a amazing experience so far.
