Day 279 - Alternative Spring Break
I was sitting at my desk at city hall today when a whole troupe of gringos walked through the door. I immediately recognized a few of them as professors from the University of Florida who had come to visit last March. This year, they came down in the summer because March was election season. The team consists of a epidemiologist, an anthropologist and his wife (a Salvadoran doctor), and a group of public health and medical students, mostly juniors or seniors. Just like last year, they came to do surveys and hand out basic medications in the caserio of El Limon, one of the most oft-ignored communities in Torola. More than anything, the trip is an opportunity for college students to see first-hand the conditions in a third world country—the poverty, the health concerns, the squalor. The work they do is also valuable. They did not perform a survey for their own purposes, but rather did work for the local health clinic, easing their workload. And they handed out basic medication, toothbrushes, and toys for the kids. The students really enjoyed playing with the kids, for whom this will be a highlight for months to come.I is for Iguana
Stressed out at school! I caught some sort of nasty bug and have been stuck in bed all the time! The digital camera seems to be broken and I had to borrow my mom's iphone! ARGH! ...Anyway. Once upon a time, back in the '90s and early '00s, before the dreaded words "Harry Potter" and "Pokemon" were ever heard on these fair shores, there was a fad, at least in my part of the country, for kids to collect lizards made of stretchy fabric and filled with sand. Not Beanie Babies, mind you--Beanie Babies were on their way out. These had to be all reptiles. And filled with sand. And shiny. Preferably home-made and collected at craft fairs. (Which, in my part of the country, there are a number.) Of course I bought plenty, and of course I still have every single one of them. This is an unusually large specimen, and has fancy added ridges on his back, and real toy eyes! (As opposed to the usual black beads.) His name is Alfred. He is an iguana. When he's not sunning himself on my bookshelf he reads and likes to watch Dorothy Lamour pictures.
