Medical mission to Bolivia, revived

Hey folks, I mentioned in my last post that I recently exchanged photos with my friend Yong, who was a part of my spring break trip to Bolivia. He had some most excellent photos in his collection that I just have to share.

We spent a lot of time at the Hogar de Ninos, the home for boys, in Montero. Everyone, from the boys, to the other volunteers from the community, were super nice.

The boys really liked to high five all of us!

Then we went to the main hospital.

We met the interns, many of whom were from Brazil and were spending a year here completing their internship. These guys had a bit of downtime to read. I think we interrupted their reading, but they didn’t seem to mind too much.

We walked back to the hotel one day and went to the Square in Montero.IMG_0089 IMG_0096

We also spent a few afternoons in the community, doing free blood pressure and diabetes screenings. IMG_0554 IMG_0555 IMG_0557 IMG_0566 IMG_0569 IMG_0570 IMG_0575 IMG_0578 IMG_0582 IMG_0583 IMG_0597 IMG_0607 IMG_0608 IMG_0609 IMG_0611 IMG_0612 IMG_0614 IMG_0616 IMG_0617 IMG_0626 IMG_0629 IMG_0630 IMG_0641 IMG_0642 IMG_0652 IMG_0665
