A snapshot of surgery

We were a pretty tech-heavy crew in Peru with the April Amazon Cares trip. One of the items I packed was a Flip camera, which unfortunately chose to poop out entirely about one week into the trip. For the first half, though, it was a cool camera to have since I could set it up on a tripod and just film a half hour of activity.

I put together about 40 minutes of footage from 2 clinics the first week in Iquitos. I then sped up the footage so you can see all of this in two minutes’ worth of video, which once I actually started talking during the voice over wasn’t nearly enough time for someone as chatty as me to say all I could say, but that’s OK.

When we watched it in Peru we thought this view of things was pretty interesting. I hope you do too!

    Neat. Reminds me of when I used to do RAVS (Rural Area Veterinary Services) trips through the Humane Society of the US when I was in vet school. I’d love to go back someday and help out as a doc.

  • very interesting, thanks for adding the narration.
