It has been hard to find the time to post as so much has been going on. Its hard to believe it is May 30th and I have been here since the 18th. I am loving my time spent in Thailand.
Each week day is spent at my worksite. We start the day at a day care helping the staff with various things such as putting fluoride on the children’s teeth or doing health check ups. Then we go with the nurse to see one or two patients in their homes. After that we do activities such as teach English to the local hospital workers.
Myself and two other students on the trip are EMTs so on Tuesday we got to spend the morning at the local ER observing.
We were given the weekend off. A group of us went west to explore the area near a national park. We went to ride elephants and see a waterfall, except it was dry because we are at the very beginning of the wet season. We spent the night at a hotel and then woke up and sat by the pool. We also went to a massive mall called Terminal 21 which has 6 levels and hundreds of stores.
Today is Monday and we are back to work at our worksites. It is upsetting that this is my last week in Thailand. I absolutely plan to come back to Thailand at some point.
