Not Dead, Just Resting

So, I got an awful case of food poisoning on our last night in Hohhot, and, after 48 hours of misery, we went to the hospital. I got an immediate glucose IV, and they did some tests to rule out diseases I thought were extinct. Chinese employees often get nervous and flustered when confronted with a Westerner in their place of business, but I still wish it hadn’t taken the nurse quite so many stabs to find my vein.

I have a pile more Mongolia pictures to post and some hospital adventures, too, but I have to go back to sleep now.
