This morning, we left Lamba we had a relaxing and peaceful car ride. Mom, Ivan and I made the good decision to ride in one of the two support vehicles. Because of the accident, there are two rickshaws now driven by professional, local rickshaw drivers and two rickshaws driven by Americans.
I did two notable things in the car. I took pictures and completed a lesson of math. Out of the window, we saw dessert landscape and small villages. I had fun shooting pictures of the rural villages and even some of the urban towns. Soon my Mom said “Ho, Ho, He, He, you have to start your math. Ho Ho. Ho” (Actually, she said it nicely.) My picture taking came to the end and I did math until the outskirts of Kishingarh.
Once in Kishingarh, we drove to the hospital where we will be staying and where our clinic is based. We are staying in a spartan hospital dorm with shared bathrooms down the hall. We checked into our room and found a new rival: mosquitoes. These are particularly dangerous due to the disease they carry: malaria. My parents took a shower while I slaughtered a massive amount of little biting buggers infesting our room! We made sure to put on a lot of DEET and have made it impossible for mosquitos to enter our room by using a handy mosquito net.
Tonight, we went to dinner with Rally for Health group. I am excited to see more of Kishingarh tomorrow.
