End Of The Week Update

Sak passe?!

Well, we’ve made it to the end of our first week. Looking back, it has gone by faster than anticipated. But, time flies when you’re having fun 🙂

In addition to the surveys we completed at the beginning of the week we were able to have an informational session with the nurses, a Q&A type of session. Julie does research on Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s so those were two of the topics covered. We reviewed the surveys yesterday and have about 200 surveys completed. By next week I am sure we will make our goal of 400. I am excited to get back to the states and continue to work with Marjorie and Julie to assess our information in greater depth.

Although we’ve been working, we’ve definitely found time to spend some time to soak up the full experience of Haiti. Yesterday, we took our clothes to the river and washed them…I’m not that great at it but it made for a good laugh 🙂 We also took a trip to the market where Julie and I bought some awesome hats. They’re like your own personal umbrella, which is nice for this beautiful, sunny, HOT, weather. This weekend Vierge is teaching us how to cook…that will make for a blog in itself! We’ll let you know how that goes…
