Bahamas – Warm welcome

By Catie Kennedy

Today marks the beginning of our Bohemian adventure. We arrived at the Atlanta airport at 7:30 this morning with our bags of scrubs, stethoscopes and sunscreen.

We landed in Nassau for a quick layover and then flew to Eleuthera around 4:30. We were welcomed graciously by Audrey and Vincent, our local contacts here in Tarpum Bay.

They hugged our professors tight and told us what they’ve been up to over the last few months. Vincent expertly drove us down curvy bumpy roads to our destination in Tarpum Bay. We looked up in wonder at the beautiful green and white bahamian home for the next week.

After carrying our luggage up two flights of stairs, we were treated to a feast of chicken, pasta, salad, brownies, and Goombay Punch. Audrey told us about her beautiful country and gave us more information about the population we will be working with this week. After being welcomed so kindly, we feel lucky to be here and can’t wait to see what this week will have in store.
