November 5-14 we took part in another trip to Central America. We went to Guatemala, principally in Quetzaltenango. Here are some photos of some of our experiences there doing dentistry and also some humanitarian projects.
In the above photo you can see me in action here with my assistant Joe Horst. He is a pre dental student and did a tremendous job assisting. He was great getting instruments to sterilization and never seemed to tire.
It is pretty hard not to appreciate a face like this. All in all we had a wonderful experience in Guatemala. We worked hard, traveled hard and gave everything we could. We have wonderful friends, we made some new friends that we cherish. This is a perfect way I think to express my thanks at this Thanksgiving time.

I had to walk from the Hart Senate Building over to the Cannon Office Building and then back to the Hart Building and then back to the Cannon Building last Tuesday. If was busy in front of the Supreme Court Building. I asked one of the Capitol Police Officers how many were in the force just for the Capitol Building; 1700 was the answer. That's more than we have in my county, by far. Anyway here are how things looked. Observing some of the people it verified a maxim I often recite: If you hang around long enough you will see just about everything.
We had some time to kill Tuesday between visits with the Utah Congressional Delegation so we walked down to the Air Space Museum. Yes, there is a McDonalds in there and we were hungry. While eating a big group came in. Honor Flight. WWII Vets. I loved talking to a few of them. They are going to be gone in a few more years. And yes they were eating McDonalds. It was better than anything they had in Northern Africa, Sicily or Normandy; Guadalcanal or Okinawa. All of them at least in their mid to late 80's and some 90's. I hope we don't ever have to go through that again; I doubt we could do it again.
I was walking around the White House and noticed something different from the last time I was there a year ago. There has been a fence around the White House with guarded gates from some time. Now there is a small fence to protect the larger fence. I guess the guy that jumped the fence has spooked the Secret Service so this is a stop gap measure. Last year I had a great conversation with one of the Secret Service cops. This year they did not look like they wanted to participate in any banter. I went around the Old Executive Building and made my way through the Ellipse area. There are some statues here and there--all blocked off. I was wondering if I lived in the "land of the free" still. Everywhere you go it is like this. Even during the Civil War people could walk up to the White House and knock on the door.
