More differences--- today we went on the house visits with MayMay to visit more moms who gave birth at the clinic. This was to see if the patients enjoyed their experience, had any suggestions, would deliver there again etc. Melissa got to ride her first trike! It was awesome. It was just so interesting to see how these people live. I mean obviously we're reaching out to those in need, those who don't have the money to pay for a good hospital to deliver their baby. The houses we saw today were probly the size of my bathroom back at home. Two had a mom, dad, and 2 babies living it; another had a mom, dad, 3 kids, and a baby. It's just so crazy to see this whole different world than mine. And...they were happy. The moms were so happy to have us come see them. They were so happy to have their baby in their arms. It's just...so different.
A couple of observations so far:
1. Medical students have to wear ALL white. But black underwear are perfectly acceptable.
2. Making a U turn from the far right lane? Sure, why not.
3. Those while and yellow lines on streets to help control traffic? That's exactly what they are- just lines. Maybe considered guidelines, but possibly not even that.
4. Bananas are not the same.
5. McDonald's delivers.
6. Power outages can be followed on Twitter.
7. You're more likely to see a DVD before it even comes out in theaters.
8. The pirated video store will text you when they get more stock in.
9. If you're 12 and your dad tells you to go buy him some alcohol you're totally allowed.
10. Privacy doesn't really exist.
11. If you can find a place with AirCon stay there all day.
12. Highlights, hair cut, manicure, pedicure, permanent straightening, and possible massage- it all comes in a package for about 40 bucks.
13. Pedestrians do NOT have the right-a-way.
14. No worries- everybody has a facebook and they all love Twilight. It's like being back at home.
More to come as I notice them! :D Love you guys! Keep up the prayers!
