Observations of a Toubob at Abass Ndao Hospital
The director of the hospital asked me this question after I had been working at the hospital for a few weeks. At the time, I did not answer as I could not pinpoint one specific thing that made the entire experience so incredible. The director said he was sure I would agree with him when he told me the answer to his question. Finally, after I stammered for a few minutes looking for the right words to explain one of the wonders of the world, he said to me, « The most shocking thing is that something so large passes through an opening so small». I laughed in spite of myself after hearing this relatively simple answer not because he was wrong, but because he was right.
