That Is One BIG Truck!

On the way to our weekend of rest and relaxation, we stopped to see the BIG Mission Rabies truck and surgical suite. This is an amazing vehicle, which can easily be mobile or static and bring multiple dogs in for sterilization and other care. The truck is also used for educational sessions and trainings.

Clinician's Brief

Later we stopped for brunch at a local restaurant that specializes in healthy, natural foods and juices. Many of the group had been craving fresh fruit and although we have been enjoying many delicious Indian dishes, it was nice to have something different. After juices, smoothie bowls, pancakes, and avocado toast, we ventured out into the area for an afternoon of shopping and site-seeing. We reconvened after a few hours and checked in to our accommodations, an outdoor retreat surrounded by nature. After some free time to relax, the group walked down to a nearby beach for a sunset dinner.

We were feeling adventurous, so we hired the local speedy taxis called tuk tuks to return us to the retreat—what a ride! After saying goodnight and going to bed, we all experienced our first Indian thunderstorm; it lasted for several hours and gave us quite the lightning show! 

The next morning, we rose early for a gentle yoga and meditation session. The stretching and movement felt good after walking all those miles.

After yoga we enjoyed breakfast and spent the rest of the day exploring area walking paths, beaches, and shopping. We took a scenic route back to our home base, where we felt rejuvenated and ready to start another week of vaccinations.
