We were picked up at 6:20 this morning and taken to Ambergris Caye airport for a Tropic Air flight to Belize City Municipal Airport. All our equipment was loaded and our 3 large suitcases with supplies. We were then transported by van to Biscayne, a small village about 45 miles away.  The hygienists on the team had the children brush their teeth outside and then they took them inside for a flouride treatment. They were screened for decay and then Brenda & I took care of the dentistry needed for the adults and some children.  There was a nice breeze, but it was HOT in the little room they supplied us.  We used air compressors at this site, which worked great, but for some reason we had NO suction, and that was hard.  A lot of situps to spit in a cup.  At the end of the day we packed up and took our flight back to meet the group in San Pedro to hear about everyone's experiences and to talk about the next day.  We have a new site tomorrow that we will fly out to again
