Teaching and Eating

On the second day in the operating room, I mostly advised while Dr. Wong who is the local plastic surgeon did the surgery.  We had some lively discussion through or interpreter, Joy who is a dental student in San Francisco.  She also happens to be of Taiwanese decent.  DSC05377.JPGDSC05389.JPG 

On the left I am assisting Dr. Wong.  On the right I am showing the other surgeon who is also Dr. Wong how to redo a palate repair that had come apart.  This was challenging as there was a lot of scar tissue.  Hopefully after this surgery her speech will be much improved.

The Chinese love to have banquets.  We have had 3 so far, with many interesting and beautifully presented dishes.

The butterfly was made up of pigs ears, lotus, beef, mushroom and cucumber.  Even more dihes were added to the table.  The center revolves and you pick what you want.  Many are very spicy, so one chooses carfully.
