“Remedies and realities of rural Russian medicine”
Igor pulled up to the local hospital in our UAZ jeep and ran around to the passenger side to pull me out. I winced as he lifted me out and carried me up the crumbling steps to the entryway. Inside, the building was dark, damp, and quiet. After some searching, Igor found a nurse, who directed us into a small room with a three-legged bathtub in the middle. Tiles were missing from the walls and the floor and one of the windowpanes was broken. Soon a man in a white smock and a tall white hat resembling that of a pizza chef came in and pointed me to a low bench in the next room.
