Things I'll Miss about Shell, Hospital Vozandes and Ecuador

  • · Everything within walking distance.
  • · Living across the street from the hospital.
  • · Getting into a car maybe once a week or less.
  • · Little kiosks where you can interact with a human when you buy something.
  • · Serving the very poor.
  • · Shaking hands with everyone you meet.
  • · Saying hello to everyone every morning and again in the afternoon.
  • · So little car traffic that you can walk or jog in the middle of the street.
  • · The big crime wave: some lawn chairs stolen from a porch.
  • · $1 lunch, $1.30 if you go to the expensive place.
  • · Knowing most everyone I deal with daily.
  • · Praying at the start of every work day and whenever a patient has a crisis.
  • · No malpractice claims, lawyers, or threats.
