Welcome to Namibia

Windhoek, Namibia
A quick note to start things off!
The sun is bright, the temperatures mild, and there is a group of people playing drums in a nearby building. Somehow that just makes this more real.

After a couple of long travel days, the team is all situated in Windhoek. The medical team consists of two orthopedic surgeons from Israel, four podiatrists from California, our head nurse, our nursing student, and me.*

The activities start tonight with a reception hosted by our gracious hosts from United Africa Group. Their work has been a significant part of making this mission happen, so we're glad to connect with them this evening.

* My job here is an interesting mix, for the paperwork to the operating room.
