Hello Kasia,
This child is so serious, and her big, brown eyes pierce through the camera. Her red scarf also stands out amid the very stark surroundings. Do you worry at all, while traveling through areas such as this one, about the lack of medical facilities? We never expect something bad to happen, but we never really know... Thankfully your food poisoning resolved itself, and you didn't hit the floor when you fainted! It's sad to know that members of this village could die from something easily treatable if they just had access to care...

Hi Brenda
Thank you for your kind comments!
Yes, I do worry about not being able to access medical help when needed, it's a bit nerve-racking. When we were travelling not far from the Tajik border I said to my guide that if something happened to me they should drag me across the river and leave me by the road on the Tajik side as I would be more likely to get help that way. I was only half joking!
Best wishes
