A travel blog entry by midannwife


... this is for antenatal use only. We visited the antenatal ward, where Rashmi demonstrated her exceptional skills as a midwife. She spoke with one of the women; she had been an inpatient for the last 3 weeks and was likely to remain so until delivery.

We needed to find our way to the tourism office to get our TIMS card (Trekkers information management system) and entry permit both 20 dollars each, 30 minutes later and asking for directions about 5 times we managed to find it, fill in the forms and get it all done.
