Zamboanga!

another day, another one of the Philippine islands to explore…

I flew into Dipolog City around lunch time and they put us straight to work right away! It’s my second mission this year with Physicians for Peace (well yeah this month actually). Dipolog is in the province of Zamboanga Del Norte, or “ZaNorte” for short (cute huh? like Brangelina), in the Mindanao region of the southern Philippines.

so here I am, just another short update as I am on a wifi connection that actually lets me access the TBB site! if anyone was wondering why I have not updated or went MIA on the team forum…it’s cuz I was having connection problems on my wifi network in Manila. argh! I have a bunch of pictures to post from the Tigaon mission and then will also fill you in on the one here. it was pretty darn busy today.

Training is a little wacko and I’m antsy to finally get up to Subic this coming weekend. I haven’t been in a proper swimming pool since arriving in this country over a week ago, although mini ocean dips have been nice. We saw most of our patients (if not all of them) today so I will actually have time these next couple days to go on some longer runs and longer ocean swims. Last Sunday I went on a 5.5-hour group ride in Manila with the Fitness First cycling boys which was a crazy adventure and deserves its own blog entry. Running consists of doing neighborhood laps around San Juan or hitting the track at the Ultra Sports Complex.

anyway this time they actually put us in a hotel with WIFI…so expect more blogging. hooray!
