I don't think I told you about my beautiful blonde Australian friend K and the medical treatment she recently received for a problem on her foot. She's working here in the health care sector as a consultant and therefor knows a lot of doctors and medical personel, so when she cut her foot quite badly she had a doctor check it out. Being somewhere in rural Albania at the time, the doctor quickly pulled out a bottle of Raki (an Albanian version of grappa) and poured it over her wound, an action which I am sure must have been painful. But the biggest surprise came when the doctor took her foot in his hand and proceeded to lick it clean!! I'm not sure if he really thinks that human saliva has antiseptic properties or if he just hated to see the Raki go to waste!
