In Haiti, the staff has been working non stop to get ready for the visit from Public health tomorrow. I am a little nervous because I can not be there. I am sure they are much more nervous because they are there, working so hard.
In Guatemala , Shelby continues to get somewhat unexpected tours of Guatemala. Today,  I went to a lawyer to work on a land purchase next to the clinic. Shelby, went to the ice cream store with two girls from the village, waiting for me to return to teach her how to take a bus. The lawyer took 1 1/2 hours and we still weren't finished so I asked for a break to run and get them. They sat in the office for another hour while we finiahed. At that point we were invited to see the lawyer's farm. 
So we spent the afternoon there, having lunch and seeing a rubber tree forest and learning how rubber is made. We also got to have a cheese sampling . His wife makes the best cheese that we have ever tasted.
She makes it everyday from the milk of their cows and you have to order it ahead of time if you want to be able to get any.

Tonight we finally arrived home at 7 , to have empanadas made by Marcelina. So good. We finished the night by working on the Progressing out of Poverty index. Shelby never got her bus lesson but we will try again tomorrow. It was a good day.
