We flew out of LAX late Friday night on the "red eye" to Fort Lauderdale then on to PAP. Flew on Spirit Airlines as they had the cheapest flight. Turns out that they have their ways of capturing the differential in the end such as charging for a carry on and in flight beverages. They also informed us at check-in that the weight limit for checked bags had been decreased from 50 to 40 lbs. Fortunately we were able to talk ourselves out of a weight penalty. Please be aware that airlines are becoming increasingly adept at employing cost cutting measures so check with them prior to packing your bags to make sure you don't exceed the allotted weight restriction.
Immigration and customs were a breeze however we were one of the last to depart as 6/10 of our checked bags didn't arrive with us so we had to complete the paperwork for retrieval. We're hoping that they will arrive later today.
The hospital looks very much the same only quieter, no patients sleeping in the halls. We took a long hike up into the hills, returned for a nap then made rounds to become familiar with the caseload on the wards. Pics below were taken at a small SDA church we stopped at along the way.
