Stopped for martabak on the way back.  Martabak is a really thick pancake-like dough with a choice of stuff in the middle (sweetened condensed milk, cheese, raisins, chocolate, margarine, coconut, etc.)

Cooking the martabak

Another good day – such a privilege to be individuals with talent and skills and a willingness to share them.  While the Church pays for their travel costs, leaving their practices behind for a week to 10 days costs them real money.  And they do so freely.  This is Dr. Lindsay’s 20th humanitarian trip; the 10th for his his wife.  Dr. Visick and Dr. Groberg have been on multiple trips as well.   And the students were such a delight – it was wonderful watching them having a great time, learning valuable skills and knowing they will be going out to train others.
