Today was the team’s off day, which meant a much more relaxing start to the day. Drs. Lieberman and Hisey did pop over to the hospital for a quick round with recovering patients. They brought Michelle our new physical therapist along so she could meet the Ugandans she’ll be assisting over the next month! All the patients were excited to have her here to help in their recovery! Michelle even remained at the hospital to get a jump start on the physio and hopefully get these folks back on their feet as quickly as possible!
Our first stop was the equator. We all took pictures standing in the equator markers, one foot in each hemisphere! We also got a demonstration of the Coriolis effect, the effect of earth’s gravity on draining water to spin a certain direction. The demonstration was done with large tin funnels. The team was split on whether the effect is real, or simply a swindler’s trick… but it doesn’t really matter cause our money went down the drain both ways and backwards.
