**NOTE: For some unknown techy reason I can't get the pictures from my camera onto Justin's computer so they will be added later ... I hope.
afternoon: phone messages from Thais to call home ASAP ... Mom in hospital, not serious, has a type of flu which is going through Atria El Camino Gardens ... booked a flight Phoenix to Sacramento ...
11:30 pm: Tufesa bus leaves Guaymas - muchimas gracias to Roberto who went to the bus station and bought me the ticket - and then drove Dick and I to the bus station - his parting words with a handshake and a warm smile, "Es mi placer." It's my pleasure.
I took the executive bus, big comfortable seats that recline way back. When I travel alone, I like to sit on the left side where there's only one seat. Passengers get a box lunch for the trip. There is also free wifi, black-out curtains, and (too-loud) movies. I watched The Prince of Persia with Jake Gyllenhaal in Spanish.
So, just 24 hours after receiving the phone messages I was at the hospital. Here's the story:
A type of flu hit Atria El Camino Gardens - 7 of 17 residents + staff had been affected. As each resident presented symptoms, they were sent to a hospital for diagnosis. No resident was allowed to return until they'd been medically "cleared."
