Today I woke up to the smell of the Oat Meal!!!!!. If I have on more bowl of....that, I will simply die! After breakfast, we had to help set the Tibetan tent up again. Today, we had an easier time setting it up. It looks like we will have another storm tonight. Let's hope the tent does not go down again. This morning, some of the Americans staying at the clinic went to visit a group of CHWs (Community Health Workers) and invite them to the heath festival next week at our clinic.
In the middle of putting up the tent I had a feeling like I was about pass out. After this brief and scary experience, Mom said I should go upstairs and lay down. Soon, I was feeling like throwing up. My parents thought that I was dehydrated and gave me lots of water. This made a big difference and my sickness passed by lunch (happily). Today at lunch, Drohga cooked yak meat with squash. I have decided to eat yak meat. It might get me sick, but it is totally worth it! The meat is sooo chewy and delicious.
After lunch, we left the clinic to go bathe. A little while along our walk to the bathing pond, we realized we did not have shampoo. So, I was sent back to the clinic to obtain the shampoo. Returning from the clinic, I got a ride with Wambao on his motor bike. Wambao was also going to the pond to bathe. We passed my parents still walking to the pond and left them in the dust! We found Martin sun bathing by the pool. We all washed our hair, and headed back clean (me on the motorbike).
Our arrival to the clinic, was happily greeted by work. We had to move a pile of gravel into the back of a truck, to clean the grounds for the festival. At first I did not do so well with it, but soon I manned up and did the job well. This one hour job defeated the whole purpose of bathing. I was filthy!
The Americans have returned and we are making dinner. I am content with the day and hope we can have just as good of a day tomorrow.
