On Friday as many dentists as possible went back to the Lion's Den for the morning.  The rest of us had plenty of work to do getting all the equipment ready to ship back to the USA, gathering our stats, and delivering rice & beans.  The "Rice & Beans" project was started a few years ago by a dental assistant from Idaho.  We all pool our money and purchase rice and beans in bulk from the mainland and divide it into bags enough to feed a family for a week.  On Ambergris Caye groceries are very expensive and a supermarket as we know it is nonexistent. We delivered the bags to the poorest community in all of Belize, San Mateo.  It is quite an experience to walk through that neighborhood.  The people were so appreciative.
