From this picture you wouldn’t know it, but this hotel is beautiful inside-just like the pictures from the website. When we arrived at the hotel we all had a similar response-that’s not what it looked like on the internet. Everyone emerged from the cars with quizzical looks on their faces. Not judgmental, just confused. From the outside it looked like a place mid construction where the workers either hadn’t shown up recently and left without tidying up. I actually thought our driver had pulled over because of car trouble or something. It didn’t occur to me that this could be a hotel that was open for business.
How’s that for a don’t judge a book by it’s cover lesson?
Day two comes to an end and I head to bed for the first night in Paraguay. The last 36 hours have been packed and tomorrow will be a long day of screening potential patients for the week of surgery ahead. We were told tonight that there’s likely to be at least 300 kids there tomorrow. My bag is packed with tons of supplies to keep them all occupied. Wish me luck and TTFN, I’m too beat to write more.
