Man’s Cure For The Fever: Buddha Park, Laos

by | Jun 20, 2010 | Doctor in the House, Laos, Summer 2010: Southeast Asia & India | 0 comments


Good news: My fever is gone, although my stomach is still in a little tizzy. The cure for the fever? A healthy serving of coconut water, chicken bamboo soup, and 30 minutes in a Laotian herbal sauna for $2 USD.

The culprit for the sickness? I’ve noticed that Annah brushes her teeth with bottled water, whereas I’ve been using tap water this whole trip. But that’s just a hypothesis, so don’t take my word for it. Once I finish 7 grueling years of medical training starting this Fall, I’ll get back to you with a better idea of what happened.

Anyways, we just saw a very very bizarre Buddha Park (designed by a renowned Laotian guy who was probably very very under the influence) 20.6km south of Vientiane:



…and we’re about to head to the airport for the “most romantic city in Southeast Asia”: Luang Prabang. Thanks to all my friends for their well wishes.
