Trip Start Feb 22, 2006

While on the shoddy small tour bus, driving on clifs with a driver that appeared sober... a small indescretion occured. The bus hit the curb (to make sure it was still there?) and immediately started to jacknife! luckly he got control of it and was able to avoid a catastrophy. It was strange as he didnt say a word about it, but I do remember hearing a long series of clicks of the seat belts after that!
That night (Monday) Sanjay and I took the car out and had indian food. After that spicy episode we went to the pub near the hotel. Not suprisingly it wasnt a lively joint.. but one that was visited by the locals.
After one pint we decided to leave and find another joint. Apparently i'm a jinx or something as when we got into the car I mentioned to Sanjay "You know... I havent seen any cops around.. have you?" While pulling out of the pub the reply I hear is "yeah I have.. thers one following us now!"
The next thing I know i see the blue lights flashing and the cop waltzing up to the car.
"I just pulled you over cuz I saw you leaving the pub"
"Have you been drinking tonite?"#
yeah. just one pint.
"come with me please"
With that I remember the expression on Sanjay's face... it was priceless.. a combination of wonder and disbelief!
A few minutes later Sanjay saunters back.
Apparently 2 pints is the legal limit (.08) and since he only had one he was a-okay.
The funny thing is that the cop never asked for his name or anything. Apparently here you can get pulled over for absolutely no reason! (its a wonder why everyone walks home after the bars)
At any rate! That was pretty crazy so we only went to one more pub before heading back to the hotel!
This morning we got up and did the jobshadowing experience. Today was better than yesterdays... i learned a great deal about how the u.k. health system works and how the physicians interact with their patients.
Quite the eventful few days.. yeah?
