I'm not sure if I can get all the questions answered but I'm just hoping for the best!
I was surprised to see how far the health center was from WARC. Apparently, it was right by the African Renaissance Monument. The health center was painted in light green and white and it was cleaner than I thought it would be. I thought it would be very busy at 3pm but there were not that many patients at the time. The condition and the layout of the health center were very similar to the ones in the states and had most of the machines/devices that you could see in the states. I guess I was expecting much worse which was really foolish and arrogant to even think/judge that way just because the country isn't developed as the states. I guess I have to get rid of all my arrogant thoughts before coming back on Monday to start my internship and get the best out of it.
