Last night we treated ourselves to a tour of the Santa Maria - The Parador museum and dinner in the restaurant of Chiapanecan cuisine. Santa Maria is an old hacienda dating from the 19th century. It has been restored into a hotel and restaurant and decorated with furniture and art of that century and earlier ones. The have a wonderful museum of sacred art from the 16th to 19th centuries. The Santa Maria also has beautiful gardens with exotic flowers.
We arrived again in clinic shortly before 9 AM and and were set up and ready for the waiting patients by 9:10. We had another night of rain and the roads were even more flooded today. We also saw some small mud slides along the road, but nothing that hindered our travel. We are praying we will not have more rain tonight, as we are afraid it might cause us to cancel clinic if the road has deeper water.
We have had a busy laboratory this trip, doing many Complete UA’s, Pregnancy Tests and Diabetic Screens. Sara has also been busy fitting glasses in addition to her injections.
And once again, Mother Nature didn’t let us down. Our daily rain shower started right around 4pm as it has every day we’ve been in San Antonio Buena Vista. Who needs a watch with consistency like that?
