Report of 13 June 2011

Hello from Sydney, Australia -

We are on holiday here and Dr. Andrew Penman, a member of the American College of Physicians and the CEO of the New South Wales Cancer Centre has found us a wonderful bed and breakfast here. We have seen old friends, Kalpana and Suresh Rao, spending a spectacular day with them; seen the Sydney Opera House and the Talonga Zoo; and met Andrew and his daughter, Meredith, for a very lovely dinner last night. Both Andrew and Meredith are firm fans of reaching out to the marginalised, Meredith as a stage actress and Andrew in his role.

Medicine has taken a bit of a backseat, except for treating the men off and on. Australia is nice, it is winter here and everyone is apologetic about the cold and wet weather. However, we left 100 degree heat and 80% humidity and no airconditioning, and I have run the last 3 mornings here, marvelling at the fact that I am not sucking wind 45 seconds into the run. It has been lovely and cold.

More after we return to Chennai -
