Medical Care, Tashkent

In need of quick check-up and various "other" tests related to the accidental horse eating episode, we shuffled back and forth to the retro-Soviet establishment that is Polyclinic No. 1.

After unsuccessfully drawing blood from our fingers, she suggested she try from our ears. We politely declined.
