A Souvenir


While in Vietnam 10 days ago, I slipped and fell on, literally, a “slippery slope.”  I took a hard fall on my wrist.  It didn’t get any better, so I popped over to the Royal Phnom Penh Hospital near the airport to get it x-rayed.  Turns out I have a bad sprain.  It’s thankfully not broken.

The hospital was amazing—beautiful, clean, and modern. They even come around and serve you water. The best part: it only cost $47, including x-rays and the consultation with a surgeon, who is a Thai doctor.  The hospital can treat most minor ailments.  For more major problems, they will fly the patient to a sister hospital in Thailand.

I joked that the next time I need an x-ray, it’ll probably be cheaper to fly to Cambodia and get it done at this hospital.
