PS: magnificent magdalena in rwanda



this post goes with my post from yesterday. i received this email and these photographs from Dr Mags yesterday:

You are so sweet and it was great working with you, sure it was all joking!! I am attaching few pics of my patients in Rwanda and DRC - also quite cool people they are!
Big hugs,
M
if anyone is interested for more check out the website: http://www.gorilladoctors.org/
the work these people do is fascinating. and these creatures are mind blowingly magnificent. just like magdalena.
