from Emily's diary



I went to visit my grandmother in Mexico and she took me . . .  not shopping, not to the beach, not out to lunch but instead to the doctor.  Why?  I arrived with a sinus infection and simply had to get some drugs.  First stop was going to be the village clinica but today is la doctora's dia del descanso..  Chuy recommended a doctor in Armeria but he was not in the office today.  Next stop was a pharmacy that directed us down the street to yet another pharmacy to see Dr. Antonio.  This place was a combo convenience store-pharmacy-doctor's office.  Sure enough he was there, asked a few questions (i.e., does it hurt here?  Do you have a headache?  Do you have a fever?) and with what he learned he prescribed an antibiotic and decongestant.  $126 pesos later ($8 US) we were headed home.  I popped the pills, went out like a light for a long sleep and am feeling better.

So much for fun in the sun!
