A Weekend Away but Never Off Call

As we finished a successful week, we headed up the coast for some R&R.  The place we picked out is the Punta Sal resort which is about 120 miles north of Piura. We traveled through some very arrid country where the only thing we saw was number of oil wells and some goats.  Arriving at the resort in time for lunch.  After checking in everyone headed to the beach.  After dinner some stayed up to dance and some went to bed to catch up on sleep.
Sunday morning the weather was clear and more time was spent by the beach or the pool.

Just as many of us were getting ready to leave there was a frantic call from the pool area for a "medico".One of the women had dislocated her shoulder. The team was mobilized and under the direction of Ian we were able to put things back in place.

No one really wanted to leave, but we still have many patients on the schedule for next week.
