You will read why I decided at age 55 to leave my position, jump into the unknown and get off the beaten path. I will relate how my wife, Anne, and I accomplished this and how I kept working for various lengths of time in a number of different cultural settings around the world and how we traveled extensively between assignments.
The book is written as a series of loosely connected anecdotes, some medical, some non-medical. Some are funny and some are not so funny. When appropriate, I have added some reflections about our experiences.
I try to convey to the reader the excitement we have felt about our adventures. I hope that the book will inspire readers, medical and non-medical, to consider at some point of their careers to take the step to get off the beaten path. Anne and I certainly have never regretted our choices and have never looked back. Reading this book might also inspire people with similar experiences than ours, to write and publish their story.
One of the highlights of my medical work abroad has been the four months I volunteered at a small Catholic Hospital in Chiapas Mexico. The nuns there did an incredible job running the hospital for the impoverished Mayan population under difficult circumstances. They need all the help they can get. Thus I have decided to make this book available for free and suggest to the reader that they consider making a donation to San Carlos Hospital in Chiapas, in lieu of the customary downloading fee.
