i don't know what time it is (late?). I am in the baby ward sitting on a field bed trying to get some work done. I am sharing the bed with a girl who is about 3 hours old, covered in a towel. So far we are not bothering each other.

We have a few locals with us translating, i always ask about their families and they usually reassure me that everyone is fine. i just ask this one man and got the answer I didn't want to hear. His wife and kids where at home, he was lucky to be outside. He used to work at a bank but the bank is gone as well. He said that God does whatever he wants. He wasn't angry, just accepting and so happy to be alive. surreal.
