April 1 2009 Eye Exams In The Mayor's Office In Coray Valle

Today we were in San Francisco de Coray, as close to the end of the world as you can get and still be in Honduras. Over 2 hours on “normal” roads from Tegucigalpa and then another hour by dirt “road”. When we arrived we set up to perform the exams in the Mayor’s office. We saw 64 people and of the 64 we found several cataracts and several ptygeriums. Old and young alike showed up to have their eyes examined.

We also ran into another rare occurrence in Honduras, a little albino girl. She was full of energy and never sat still.
