You Can see the hatch-work of the rebar covering the roof.
Terri was on call this weekend, but it was one of the quietest weekends we have experienced since coming to Tinian--don't know why. Terri is the sole provider on the island this week, as her partner is off to a convention (or something) in Hawaii. Later this month Terri and I will be headed for San Diego for a PA convention, and the NP will have to handle the clinic alone. It is nice to have at least two providers in the clinic so that they can each get a break. I don't know how Dr. Toledo did it--he was the lone provided on the island for almost a year. I assume they brought help from Saipan.
Since we had some free time, we went swimming and up to check on the Bridge Casino. They built a patio off of one of the worker's dorms they have been building. On the way back, riding on our scooters, I was stung by a bee. It was the first time since being on Tinian that I have been stung. The bee hit my neck, and before I could swat it off, I got stung. Fortunately, I am not allergic to bee stings, but it did get red and itches a lot.
I have having a grand war with the ants in the apartment. Over time, we have won the battles with the large ants and flying termites, but we have these tiny ants that can get in the smallest crack or opening, and they don't seem to have any problem with bug spray! I find where they are coming in, spray the ants, and they are killed, and stop coming--for about an hour. Then they start coming again. So...although I am winning every battle, it is clear that I am losing the war! I'm sure we will wake up some morning and find ourselves out on the lawn--the ants will have just carried us out in our sleep and taken over the apartment...
