So this is it! We are finishing up our time here as our colleagues are starting their placements in Uganda! You can follow their journey here https://ubcmidwiferyuganda2016.wordpress.com/2016/
The fatigue has set in for us. The last week has brought a new round of gastroenteritis to 2/3 of us and our lungs are struggling with the air quality again as well. Kristi and I especially were a bit sad to leave the gorgeous mountainside to return to the loud, polluted city, although it offers its own set of interesting things to do and see. :)

We look forward to finishing up our time here being able to see different places women can give birth in Kathmandu. Perhaps we will have more to say after our visits, however I am mindful that I will be giving this computer to its owner soon and may not be inspired to write more when I return home as I will be busy catching up with family and friends and finishing my 3rd year research project!
Thank you to our many friends, colleagues and teachers at MIDSON and Dhaulagiri Zonal Hospital. Without your work and kindness in opening your arms and your places of work to us we would have not had this incredible experience. We hope our collaboration can continue and that midwifery for Nepali women will be a reality very soon.
Thank you also to friends, family and colleagues back home, for following and supporting us. We look forward to discussions with many of you soon!
