To Anne and our kids, Ingrid, Elke, Tom and Frank. Without Anne I would never have done what we ended up doing. The kids were independent and supportive enough to allow us to leave the beaten path without worries.
Special dedication: I am dedicating this book to the group of Catholic nuns who run Hospital San Carlos in Altamirano, Chiapas Mexico. Our experience at that hospital is described in Chapter thirteen. We were most impressed with their superior effort to provide medical care to the destitute Mayan population in that area under difficult circumstances and with minimal resources. Thus, rather than selling this book on line I am making it available for free and suggest that anyone downloading the book, make a donation to that hospital in lieu of the usual downloading fee.
