I cannot believe it has been a whole month today (Sunday). Time is going by so fast. Monday, I was able to create some objectives with my site coordinator. Tuesday through Friday I was able to continue to work with the child educators and nurses offering presentations to teach parents about breast-feeding and its benefits. Additionally, I was able to learn some of the responsibilities nurses have as well as their protocols in the maternity, nursery, and neurologist department for babies. I am very impressed with the healthcare system here. Everyday I continue to learn something new working in my internship. I am excited to take everything I am learning back home.I am very impressed with the healthcare system here.
This weekend was a lot of fun. Saturday, I was able to go roller-skating in Palermo, Buenos Aires with my old roommate, a new friend, and my coordinator from BAC, who has made me feel so at home along with her mother who has become like my second mom. Today, Sunday I was able to get to know and explore a different part of Buenos Aries, San Telmo, where I got to see many acts and walk around all the markets in the streets with my co-worker and her sister who have become great friends of mine. Then they took me to a museum where I got to a small portion of the history here in Argentina. Later, after I said good-bye to them I met my roommate up who took me to a Syria culture fair where we ate some good food and listened to some great music. Then to end my day I got to go home and enjoy some great company while drinking some mate.
