We flew from Lhasa to Chongqing to board the Victoria Selina. Several members of our group have come down with the Chinese version of Montezuma’s revenge. It knocked Mike right off his feet. Dr Hu, the ship’s doctor, gave Mike and another of our traveling group an intravenous drip of meds and Chinese herbs. After six days of “suffering” and hours and hours of sleep, he seems to be on the mend. Unfortunately, he has missed many activities and scenery. Dr. Hu also worked on his head he and neck ache, and they went away!
Dr. Hu also gave a very interesting lecture about Chinese medicine. He demonstrated acupuncture and cupping. (Remember Michael Phelps at the olympics.)
