It was, as all of these medical mission trips are, life changing for so many people. I would just like to share some of the photos from the journey again.
I'll start with photos from our first two days in Haiti. The first village we set up our clinic in was a tiny stone and mortar school that was a long 3 hour or so drive down rocky mountain roads in the back of a large flat bed pick-up.
|Standing in the back of the flat bed is a surprisingly exhausting way to travel. (and not easy on a guy who just had back surgery less than a month prior)|
|A view from the road of a typical rural home and garden with banana trees and leftover USAID tarps from the earthquake recovery covering roofs.|
|one of the most beautiful roads in Haiti. We were about to drive probably close to a blistering 20mph at this point of the trip.|
|Arriving at our first clinic day began with school being dismissed early and a lot of interest from the kids.|
|This was a normal routine in the morning, I think we only did this once or twice. This is a local preacher leading a morning Bible study on the Baptist Haiti Mission Hospital Grounds.|
|Yep. That's what a mobile pharmacy looks like. Abbey (the one on the right) did an excellent job running unquestionably the most delicate, challenging and detail-oriented departments of the mission.|
|Waiting to be seen.|
|I'm such an amazing photographer.|
|View from the school house looking over the mountainous terrain surrounding us on all sides in Chofa.|
|Even Haiti has some rich folks.|
|Day 2, we opted out of putting 15 people in the back of a flat bed and instead packed up Toyota Landcruiser and two ATVs. A much better way to travel.|
|This is a typical little roadside market where anything from chewing gum to charcoal is normally sold. These dot the highways and rural roads of back country Haiti.|
