Bhutan        slide show
....as we all journeyed from different places for as long as 2 days, we came into Bhutan withclarity and sun to see Mt. Everest and K2 from the plane window. It was dream-like....

China        slide show
On March 14, 2016 we trekked to China for a bucket list of the Terra Cotta Warriors, The Great Wall, Forbidden City and The Yangtze River cruise. First you will will not see much of the cruise as the views were disappointing. I could have skipped this part. In addition, out of the 2oo some people the majority got very sick with respiratory illness that was debilitating. Almost all places we visited were heavily polluted in air quality. Masks were necessary but did not prevent illness for anyone. With that said, I must say my favorite parts were the Great Wall, the Terra Cotta Warriors and Shanghai.

Haiti 2011        slide show
This was a momentous trip in February. I wanted to go for my birthday and we did. I wandered back to late afternoon clinic that day with just my translator. They brought a girl up on her motorcycle-Filomene. She was 20. Sitting on the exam table unable to breathe. I assessed her physical condition and history thru Diamson-she was 4 months post-partum.She had gone to PAP looking for work from the mountains where we were. She became pregnant by her employer who was married. I started treating her with everything I had available, which was not much, and then I realized she was dying and I could not help her. So I put my arms around her and held her hand. Joan arrived and agreed with my assessment. Her family thought she was cursed. No-one wanted her baby. She wanted me to raise the baby. After I recovered from being stunned the church lady and the priest both offered to raise her child.We gave her medicine for pain and allowed her to die with dignity. 5 hours later , that same night Filo

Haiti June 2011        slide show
on this trip to Haiti we had a more rugged trip to Fond Baptiste. The road gets worse. We met Filomen's baby being cared for by the church lady and her husband and financially helped by the priest. WE had a little boy with appendecitis which we treated as they are starting to do in some places in England-medical treatment. It does not always work, but he did get better for us. Always new situations. Now I want to build a 4 room clinic in Fond Baptiste.

Viet Nam & Cambodia        slide show
On October 10, 2010, we boarded our plane to fly over 20 hours to our destination, Hanoi-Viet Nam. Over the next 2 1/2 weeks we would explore the North and South and as our guide said "practice for Cambodia." It is the hottest place I have ever been. Our journey brought mixed emotions. After Bhutan, the Buddhism seemed almost sacriligious after the solemnity and peace of our experience in Bhutan. Also I wondered being of my age , how I would feel since I had 2 acquaintances from growing up that were killed in The "American War". I had no conception of Cambodia except what I read about Polpot. Viet Nam was more diverse that I expected, urban and beautiful pastoral settings along the way. Some of our experiences like riding a moving chair on an oz cart being pulled by a water buffalo who consistently whacked me with his tail in pouring rain, I will never forget. So come along with us and view what was a beautiful and unique trip.
