Sometimes we were fortunate to have a translator, but they couldn't be with all of us all the time. Below, Leigh uses what Spanish she knows along with some good old pantomime to tell Manuela how and when to use a topical for pain as needed. I believe we all used a lot of gesturing to help our feeble or non-existent Spanish. We would learn to say simple things like "Dos por dia por dolor" (Two per day for pain) while pantomiming for extra measure. Manuela's house was mission built.
There will be more photos to share from Central America in the future. I hope you enjoyed the article. Hopefully we all will recognize when there is an opportunity to lend a hand to someone when they need it, and may someone be there for you when you need a hand.
