Honduras 2012 Day 2
Despite our best efforts to prepare all of the medications last night, we fell short on getting the mobile pharmacy fully ready. More to do later today.
After a proper Honduran breakfast, with strong, black coffee, the 4X4s and Land Cruisers were packed for our jagged ride up the mountains.
Next stop, La Hicaca, a verdant place rich in natural beauty yet devoid of modern sanitation, electricity and cellular coverage. The blog will go quiet for a stretch.
The trip is stepping into high gear. Clinic, research and the public health works start today.
Full details when we return in 5 days.
