In Chiang Mai.....
Went to the best hospital in town - where they cut me open again, have given me some very expensive meds,and told me that it's a bad idea to go to Laos with an open wound.
The plus side, is that I have medical insurance, and Chiang Mai is supposed to be the best place in thailand for the New Year's celebrations.. the downside is, no Laos... at least, not this trip.
My passport (and visa) are waiting for me at the border, so I now need to find a way to get it back... hmmm
Still. Internet is cheap here, it's a thriving student city - Icould be stuck in worse places.
