Supplemental pics

Above: child with vargus leg deformity. He wasn't particularly thrilled about having his picture taken until after (when he was excited to see himself on the screen), but I think you can still note the change, particularly in his right leg. Taken with permission from the child's mother.

Next: Mango tree (and Donovan, the guide for the nature tour I went on yesterday). The lush foliage here never fails to amaze me. I've seen banana trees, coconut, guava, mango, sugarcane, and many other plants that previously were known to me only by the grocery store selection!


  1. Very interesting pictures - thanks for sharing. Make sure you have some fresh mangos for me, just seeing your pics makes me 'homesick' for the DR!

  2. Mmmm, hope you are overdosing on mangos! The ones back home will never taste quite the same once you've had the good ones there. ~Jessie
