Best thing about living in a rural hospital in South Africa has to be when the air ambulance helicopter turns up and all the kids go wild. All children within hearing distance peg it to helicopter corner to check it out and the excitement is just wild. BEST DAY EVER kind of stuff. They get to chat to the pilot, Frank, they get to check out the inside while checks are done and they wait for the patient, and then they get to see TAKE OFF. BEST FUN EVER. Happy happy children and the patient gets a quick and bumpy trip to Mthatha.
