Yesterday, I attended a futbol game for the pro-team of Xela. It was a tie. I heard that the coach would now be fired because the team did not win this game. Rough! There were fireworks the entire time, smoke bombs, and lots of emotions! The picture below is not a riot or fire, just normal "run of the mill" shit at a futbol game. It cost $4 US.
Also yesterday, we did a women's clinic, doing cervical cancer screening for 30+ women using only vinegar! Pretty cool. Friday is my first "regular clinic" day.

This weekend I am off to Antigua, to hang out and climb another volcano. I'm hoping to get more time to write more thoroughly. Next week many of the wonderful students I have been hanging out with will leave! Que triste! It went fast! I hope and expect the next group to be just as wonderful.

Until then! - Drea
