Our travels got off to a bumpy start, as Hurricane Michael delayed several flights, but 4 of us (me, Dawn, Claudia, and Arnie) were finally able to meet up in Newark, New Jersey.
Like me, Dawn is a veterinarian and works for Brief Media, the company that publishes Clinician's Brief, and she will be my roommate in Goa. Claudia is a shelter veterinarian from North Carolina. Both Claudia and Dawn have participated in Mission Rabies drives in Malawi, Africa in previous years. Arnie, a retired veterinarian, recently sold his specialty feline practice in New York and now travels the world. India will be the 40th country Arnie has visited.
