Lorely worked 10 years with Maya women victim of cervical cancer (cancer de l'uterus in French). We arrived Saturday, and a few days later she had to see a Maya woman who was coming from her village to Merida to discuss her latest tests results with an oncologist. While the women were talking together I exchanged a few words with her husband. I only know a few words of Spanish and his Mayan is better than his Spanish, it was quite fun.
A few days later I went to an hospital because Lorely wanted to know what some women had become since a year.
In both occasions I took the following Instagrams.
|Centro Oncologico de Merida. Note the logo.|
|The old autoclave (door).|
|The beautiful house next to the COM.|
|There is one assistant in front of each doctor's office.|
|What is Medecina Critica, I have no idea. I don't want to have to cross this door though.|
