For four years I have managed to avoid Greek hospitals. This time I wasn't as lucky... I have bronchitis and my brother in law absolutely insisted that I go to hospital to have it looked at. We did try his private doctor first but he wasn't available. The hospital he took me to was a private one instead of a public hospital and wasn't too bad. The wait was less than an hour and I was out of there with antibiotics. A couple of things did bother me though. The first was when I arrived and the triage nurse didn't take my temperature. I was just asked if I had one. I had no idea really, I just felt like crap. The second thing that really bugged me was when I had a chest x-ray. I was asked to strip to the waist and no gown was provided. The x-ray techie was a really young guy and I was pretty embarrassed. I lost a little dignity as he got a good look at my sixty plus year old boobs. Eighty euros later I will report that the pills are starting to work and I'm feeling a little better today.
I still owe a post about Paros which was wonderful. I have put the photos on my Flickr page which can be accessed on the side bar. My friend has returned to Germany sadly but we had a great time. More later, I'm going back to bed.
