Heading home

March 27, 2012 —

Today we got all packed up and headed out to Valle for the morning. This adorable little town allowed us to buy some souvenirs and have some local snacks. Around noon we headed back to the airport in Tegucigalpa. After saying goodbye to the amazing staff we headed out to Guatemala City and then on to Chicago. After a long bus ride home we made it back to DMU early Sunday morning. Thank you to everyone who checked in on us, supported us, and thought about us on our trip. We cannot wait to share our experiences and memories with all of you!

When she is not studying she loves to hang out with her adorable puppy and watch Friends re-runs. A good afternoon nap always seems to make her day brighter. This is her first Medical Mission trip to Honduras and she is excited to keep everybody updated on their group’s activities!
