Mwaswera bwanji?

How are you? (afternoon greeting)

As we become more comfortable with our new friends, the greetings become more informal.  Today we were introduced to Suave and Alex who work at St. Gabriel’s Hospital will be assisting us with our training.  Suave is a clinical officer (similar to a physicians assistant) who specializes in palliative care.  He has already scheduled us to treat patients this week!  Alex is our main point of contact who will be our translator throughout the training.  We are looking forward to getting started tomorrow!
