So, if you’ve been by our sister site – the newly re-christened LatinAmericanSurgery.com then you will notice that I’ve taken an abrupt detour from our planned excursion into Panama.

It’s a long story, but suffice to say, I’ll be here in Medellin for the next several weeks..(Hopefully interviewing, talking to and writing about surgeons since that’s one of the things  I do best.)

It’s a religous holiday weekend so it’s been pretty quiet since we got here, but I expect my schedule will pick up in a few days. In the meantime, I am enjoying a lovely beginning to summer here while I prepare to contact local physicians.

(and I’m not entirely ignorant about the world of fashion thanks to some undergraduate classes in costume studies at Dalhousie!)

So – I am keeping my fingers crossed that they won’t reject my application out of hand.. If they say yes – it’s a whole ‘nother application process to get a press pass into the fashion show.
