We left Hermosillo on time and landed in DF with a two-hour layover, then a short ride on a small plane to Tuxtla. It was humid and hot upon landing, unlike Tucson… at least the humid part.

We all freshened up and went straight to Sergio's museo. A couple from Bela's, Beth and Oliver, went with us… I took advantage of Oliver's and Jim's brawn to help with the large bags.

Carol, Jim, Beth and Oliver were given a brief tour from Don Sergio while I unpacked the supplies. He was completely out of petrolatum gauze and adaptic, regular gauze, Kerlix (gauze wraps), Biafine, antibiotic oinment, tape, and tube gauze. These are staples for wound and burn care. While unpacking I was once again thanking everyone that donated these supplies.
Sergio gave me the synopsis of our patient schedule tomorrow and told me a story of a young man we may go see in San Andres, if alive. Sadly, the young man was lighting fire works and was burned from head to toe. The family called Sergio and he told them to take him to the hospital, with that type of burn there is nothing he can do but care for him after he returns from the hospital. This was a month ago and he has not heard from them.
