This morning there must have been over 100 people waiting at the Djenne Health Centre: there had been radio announcements for several days alerting people in Djenne and the surrounding villages about the cataract team arriving, and people had come from as far as 50 k away. Some had arrived last night and slept by the truck.

There were some obligatory courtesy visits to the prefecture, the Mairie etc., where some speech making back slapping took place but before 10 am the team had started the consultations.
