Today was a travel/clinic day where we took a boat up the Amazon River to the Northeast of Iquitos. We had lunch, changed into our scrubs and packed up for a travel clinic at a village not far from our hotel. I worked with Dr. LaCasse and her Dermatology residents along with my classmates Jordan and Alex. We saw several cases of ringworm, eczema, an impetigo and a whole lot of head lice. Afterward, we went up to the village and saw their school. The spider in the photo makes his home just 1 door down from me; I’m really hoping he’s not dangerous. We also saw a couple of parrots and a tarantula during lunch. It’s been quite the day so far.
