Our 2 teams over a 2 week period, treated 500 villagers and examined and placed fluoride on hundreds of children. The town has no running water or electricity other than our compound and I'll never get used to the cold water showers. Our hosts are very gracious in keeping us fed for an incredibly busy week. Our schedule is filled with surgical extractions all day long. Sunday is our day off, spent at a 3 hour mass, walking around the village and jumping rope or playing soccer with the children.
Although it's nice to return home, it's always difficult to leave this little village. A part of me (my heart) remains there all year long and I look forward to returning next January, the best week of my year!
