While on medevac in South Africa, PCV's work with an American doctor who sets up all your appointments with specialists, fills your prescriptions, listens to all your aliments/complaints/observations and helps answer any medical questions (or non medical questions) that come to mind. Our doctor is a very kind man who checks on us and wants the best for us. On Sunday he took us to a Game Reserve in Pretoria (the town we're staying in). It's a small reserve and you either walk or mountain bike around. It was a beautiful day and we were able to see all the main animals: zebra, giraffe, various types of antelope, and guinea fowl.
As with being on medevac we didn't exactly have the appropriate hiking gear with us and we are also a mixture of those recovering from surgery and those whose ailments are still not defined. This made our trek slow going, something none of us PCV's had a problem with but our poor doctor who is fit and healthy seemed to have a few moments where he forgot who he was with. All in all, it was a wonderful outing and a treat to get to see so many animals close up. It was also wonderful to be out and come back knowing I was exhausted for more reasons than just being sick. I had a great nap as the sun shown down on my bed:)
