This is part 4 in a series about our journey towards working long-term in Africa. Part 1 described our decision to go back to Africa long-term, Part 2 describes Dave’s desire to train residents. Part 3 talks about a particular hospital in Tanzania that we are considering.
I’m writing this from the airport. We are on our way to Tanzania to visit the hospitals, meet the team of people Dave would be working with, see around town and generally get a feel for it all. This should give us a sense of whether this would be a good fit for us. It is also their chance to get to know us. We will be in Arusha for two weeks. (And yes, there is someone staying at our house while we’re gone.)
During the time we’re gone, we will be sharing some of our thoughts and experiences here.
