13 Hours to Go

I'm sitting in Etihad Airways' lounge at JFK with Dr. Nabile Safdar, Dr. Raymond Sze, Dr. Julie Finkel, and Dr. Zena Quezado, awaiting our 13-hour flight to Abu Dhabi. When we arrive, it will be 8:00 pm Saturday (it's an eight-hour time difference). All of them are working furiously on their laptops -- they told me they're preparing for their meetings in Abu Dhabi, catching up on world news, and getting to emails and other tasks that are hard to do in the office.

Sunday's schedule will have the doctors visiting Tawam Hospital and Sheikh Khalifa Medical City. Assuming technology cooperates, I'll post an update and photos from our first day there.
