Travelers log - Day 3 in Haiti - waiting to get into the clinic

A portion of the line outside the waiting room. People sat on a line
or rocks, talking, staring, feeding / changing / burping babies.
They couldn't even leave to go to the bathroom or they would lose their
place in line. People waited as long as 5 hours to be treated.

Waiting, waiting, waiting in the sun.

Fathers, sons, brothers.

Inside the waiting room, they have a television that plays a continuous
loop of personal hygiene and dental care. People waited very
patiently and orderly for their names to be called.
The waiting room holds about 50 at a time and was full all day.
