Most of the team arrived yesterday in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia after 3 flights. Today was our first day at the State Central Adult Hospital where the team examined and discussed the surgical and treatment options for 12 men and 4 women. The people all appeared very excited, anxious and grateful to have the opportunity to receive life-changing surgeries.
After clinic we went to lunch and discovered that our host doctors are not only very intelligent but fun. We did some site seeing and saw the Parliament and went to a show which consisted of Mongolian cultural dancing, including the sun dance, contortionist and throat singing.
Tomorrow the team will be visiting the Maternal Children's Hospital. We are looking forward to another exciting day.
