It all started when we arrived at the hospital of the Narynkol village, where we were met by a very kind and good people. On the first day we were greeted by the head physician and staff. They have organised a round table and prepared a delicious dinner for us. After dinner, we were placed in a very bright and spacious wards with mountain view. All staff have shown us very friendly and honorable respect. For the first time all the doctors and nurses have shown us equality, they treated us like doctors, not like just students. All of them were interested in the fact that we can stay there later in life.
