Day 1 – Leana

Day 1 – August 11, 2018
Today is a day of travel. Many students are coming from the US and many from Machu Picchu. I am one of the students coming from Machu Picchu. Unfortunately yesterday I didn’t heed the advice of my peers and ate a homemade chocolate popsicle and now have food poisoning. Traveling while sick is quite eye opening and a reminder of what our patients will have to go through to reach us in the jungle. It’s no easy feat. I hope this experience will help guide us to be a bit more compassionate and empathetic towards our patients on this trip.
