This week was another great one in Oaxaca! I got to go to a new clinic. I have been going to Dr Margarita´s private clinic. She is a general doctor who sees everyone from babies to the elderly from all over Oaxaca and surrounding places. Her clinic is about a 40 mintue walk from my house, so I've been able to see a different part of town. It is very small and it´s just her, she doesnt even have a nurse that helps her out. As Ive say before, things are every different here healthcare wise. For example, it was hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that she doesnt even use a computer. She has a type writer that she writes out orders and perscriptions on. Its really amazing. I have enjoyed working with her this week because she is very nice and since its just the two of us, I felt like she was much more receptive to me and helpful with my questions and showed me a lot of cool things. She is a very good doctor who is nice to her patients and always takes the time to listen to them, which can be rare in some doctors. Tomorrow I head to a new physicans clinic who also incorporates traditional and alterantive healing therapies. My medical cordinator Dr Tenorio, described her as ¨an angel¨, so I'm excited for this week.
I have started going to a Latin dance studio. It cost 30 dollors for all the classes you want all month, for up to 5 hours every evening Monday through Friday (talk about a good deal). My teacher is a dancer that has won all sorts of dance competitions here. He along with several male assitants are there to dance with us every night. So I went 4 nights this week and have been having a blast. Friday night I went back to
I am still humming along with my Spanish, I practice a lot, but Im still far from good! The weather has been a lot warmer and lots of hot sun this week, which I love. I am starting to get a lovely farmers tan, from all my walking around town. I have a week of more learning and dancing ahead of me
Until next time.......
