The final day saw us break down all the equipment and get it into storage. Dr. Bedard has contacts in Achuapa that will store all of his equipment for him. We have 2 days to relax in Leon prior to traveling to Managua for our flight home. We will leave with many fond memories of our time here and a deep appreciation for North American plumbing!
Made it back to the Hotel Austria in, Leon today around 330pm. Had another amazing week, working on the wonderful people from the mountains villages. It felt like home going back last Sunday as the people who organized everything for our mission are very gracious hosts. The second week saw us seeing many more patients. Dr. Bedard noted that over 500 people were treated during the entire 4 weeks of clinic. We performed over 1100 procedures including restorations, extractions and cleanings. The host village had a nice farewell party for us which included good food, music and dancing. It makes it very easy to come down here and do the dental work when we see the gratitude that the local people have for our efforts.
