Hospital Curtains

After a couple in my church donated some patient divider curtains to the hospital, we had to figure out how to get them down to Honduras.They are nice curtains, just very heavy. So, several people who have Delta flight privileges offered to fly down for the day (literally 24 hours in Honduras) in order to bring the curtains down. It was a great idea. And after my flight was delayed so much I would miss my connection, I took the refund they offered me and went with them on the Delta flight the next day. (Oh and by the way, we got to fly first class...lovely)
They arrived in Honduras to the hotel to pick us up, then sorting of the curtains, and packing them into garbage bags for transport back to the hospital. We loaded them in the trailer, then were free the rest of the day. We took naps, then went to dinner and the pool. Then sleep, and a nice big hotel breakfast in the morning before they headed to the airport once again for their flight. I stayed waiting for another missionary to pick me up and take me and all the curtains back home.
Thank you to the couple who donated the curtains. Thank you to those who brought the curtains down. Here are a few pictures of the first curtains hung.
