24th June 2008 Got up early (6am) mainly because it felt like midday. Amy went out for a run and left me talking to the neighbours at 6-30am in the morning. Mike and Sue had depleted the tea bag stock with their visit to Amy so have had to go to shops for essentials like tea bags, bread and milk. Dinah still feeling a bit delicate after her migraine of the last two days and so an easy day was called for. Amy went off to school and left Dinah and me with a list of jobs to do. Before the jobs were completed Amy was back at home on a morning break. After she went back to school we went for a walk into Guelph and stopped at the bakery for a delicious lunch.

Just a quick entry to let everybody who bothers (takes the time) to read my travel blog. I'm back home in Guelph now, all safe and sound. After 38 hrs of sleepless travel, my Thailand adventure has come to a close. Nice place to visit, would definately go back, don't think I'd want to live there. Sorry Santollini, I didn't manage to bring back a giant zippo. They were everywhere, but as soon as you asked, I couldn't find one. Probably wouldn't have fit in my luggage anyway. So this concludes my travel blog. Thanks for reading. Goodnight.... read more

Well, only a few days and Hanmu & I are jetting off to China (via Chicago)! We leave this coming Sunday (July 1st) at 8am from Toronto!!! But before we head off, and being responsible students of medicine, we thought that it would be good to get ready for any disease that may be thrown at us! Therefore, we have taken (I'm quite sure) every vaccine and prophylactic available to us. Here is just a short list: Hep A Hep B Typhoid Tetanus + Diptheria (booster) Flu (unfortunately, not against avian flu :( ) Dukoral (cholera + ETEC) anti-malarial (lariam - who know you could take perscription haleucinogens...) And that is just perscribed drugs. If, and when, we get the plague we are bringing an assortment of "over the counter" pharmaceuticals: advil ibuprofen motrin tylenol cold ... read more

This week has been pretty busy. I picked Jade up from the airport from India. She had spent a few weeks there and it looks like she had a phenomenal time! She also shared with me all of the things that she refrained from telling me when we briefly spoke throughout the trip! (i.e. getting stuck in the middle of a political protest etc). I really think that she has gained a huge perspective on the world now and what it is like to live in absolute poverty. That must be a fairly intense and eye-opening experience. After we dropped her off at the Airport to fly home the day after she came in to Toronto, Hanmu and I drove to Yorkville to pick up our Chinese Visas. Compared to my experiences at the US ... read more
