Second Mission report

from Dr. Jonathan Wasserstein (a.k.a. Juan Carlos)

 

Bienvenidos de Nicaragua,

Everything went very well at the clinic site today. We helped many more people than yesterday. The eye clinic saw over 550 people today.

The medical group had about 160, and the dental group was also busy all day, though their exact number was unavailable at press time.

The rumor that food prices are up is false. Yesterday, a group of 16 of us went to a restaurant about two blocks from our hotel. Most people had beverages and appetizers before dinner, and the total came to 1000 Cordobas for the group, or about 90 dollars. We were all amazed.

We are looking forward to more successful days in the clinic. I'll let you know tomorrow some wonderful stories some people want to share.

Adios,

Juan Carlos
