Saturday Morning News

Sorry for the silence here. I guess I'm kind of like the news headlines - now you have to search websites to find news about Haiti, it no longer takes up the whole front page. The truth is, there isn't much new to report regarding the earthquake here.

It's been a somewhat normal week. The floods of emails and requests have subsided and I feel like I'm in control of them now. I've had some time in the afternoons to just relax, which has been nice. The banks have opened, so I was able to get some money. The clinic has been steady this week, which is good. We were also able to make some progress in organizing the supplies in the hospital and storage area so that the work teams who are coming will have somewhere to work.

Today will be a down day. At 11, I am going on a field trip with my Creole teacher to the market in Limbe - should be interesting.

In other big news, my good friend Shauna is arriving on Monday for an undetermined amount of time to help out with setting up financial systems at the clinic. I'm very excited to have her come and experience life with her here. 

Yep, that's all for now
