Dental Elective Indonesia

Hello everyone!  My name is Joan Micha and I did my dental elective in Nepal for 4 weeks. I split my time between Pokhara and Kathmandu because I wanted to experience dental in both the city and the rural parts of a news country I have never been to. 

 

Kathmandu was very developed, I was shocked by the nightlife there and the people and the culture. everyone speaks English, and the clubs and pubs are probably better then what I have seen in London! Pokhara was gorgeous, the hills with the lake and the weather and not to forget its nightlife was just as good as Kathmandu!  

 

The hospital i was placed in were both teaching hospitals, the staff was so welcoming and my supervisor explained everything to be so well always. I had other elective students there to meet and learn about so the cultural part of the experience was really amazing!

 

Food was tooo delicious in Nepal and our housing was so peaceful and clean! Not to forget we had our laundry done and we got WIFI!! SO i was never away from my netflix!
