This Wednesday I’m off to Guatemala once again friends. You may recall that in May of 2000, when LinuxMedNews was barely a month old, I went on the road to report on the installation of a Linux network at the 300 year old Hermano Pedro hospital. The hospital is located in the historic city of Antigua and serves a large population of indigenous people’s. It is affiliated with Faith In Practice an energetic group that each spring supports weekly international medical teams that perform free treatment for the poor of Guatemala. I’ll be reporting on what has happened in the last year, how things have changed and what we hope to accomplish.
