The Hospital

Medical care is very cheap in Thailand.� It costs about 30 baht to go to the hospital (that's less than a dollar!), so people go to the hospital for every little thing.� I didn't realize this at first, and I would get alarmed whenever a student told me she couldn't come to class because she was in the hospital.� I always got worried and excused their absences.� Now I know better.

I want to write about a situation involving the hospital and excused absences, but I can't.� It would be bad for students to stumble upon�blogs about themselves, don't you think?

Anyway, people use the hospitals a lot.� I've heard that it takes a long time to be helped and that doctors don't make much money.� I've actually never been to the hospital, though everyone was urging me to go 2 weeks ago when I had a cold.
