This e-book entitled, “A Yak within the refrigerator” was once nice enjoyable (and nostalgic) for me to learn simply because, whilst i used to be an intern in Shanta Bhawan, Dr. John Dickinson so strongly communicated his abiding curiosity in excessive altitude drugs and the remedy of typhoid fever that it left an indelible mark in me. actually years later while I again to Nepal from North the US and desired to perform a little worthy and fascinating study, learning those illnesses (altitude affliction and typhoid fever, poles aside although they are) got here certainly to me.

For me the horny identify of the e-book conjured up photographs of yaks roaming round at excessive altitude within the chilly Himalayas till i finished to imagine, what precisely was once the yak doing within the refrigerator? This interesting query really encouraged me to learn the e-book once I bought a carry of it. the reply, whilst i discovered out, was once simply as interesting because the query.

The ebook is full of hilarious tales the place his close-knit kinfolk (his spouse Angela, daughter Mary and son Jamie) heartily take part writing chapters to offer us an exciting and infrequently insightful point of view of Nepal specially from the overdue Nineteen Seventies and eighties which for me made riveting examining. certainly the contributions from them upload very strongly to the allure of this e-book.

I too have many fond thoughts within the outpatient health center of pleasant banter among John insisting on conversing in Nepali together with his Nepali sufferer and the sufferer unfazed, checking out his English on John. It was once wildly enjoyable for this lowly intern because it broke up the seriousness of studying from the Guru of excessive altitude medication.
