The only thing worse than food poisoning or the stomach flu is being in a foreign country while experiencing it. Fortunately I had all of my International SOS information handy in my iPhone and was able to speak to an English speaking doctor on the phone, who arranged our visit to a hospital and coordinated with the hotel staff to make sure we got there safely. High praise to everyone who helped out!
My cousin and I had just watched Tarantino's classic film - Four Rooms. How could we help but chuckle at the irony. We were in the hands of the Bell Boy. It gets even better...his name is Clark. ;) He's our Super Man, for sure.
This photo shows Clark, the Bell-Man, from the Radisson hotel that escorted my cousin and I to the hospital. What a relief! He stayed with us all night and got us back to our hotel safely.
Dr. Chen and Dr. Garcia discuss His case, Cousin get's an IV...
Shanghai from the window...
Yeah! Fever broke, so we could fly back to Beijing. Healthy and recovering.
Happy New Year!
