When we eventually found the museum, it was not air-conditioned.
"It's to preserve the style of the building," my husband said.
Like I said, I don't remember too much. There were a lot of quack doctors in the beginning, but the science got serious and many discoveries were made in the last dynasty.
We left the oven--I mean museum-- and went into a dispensary where people were huddled on the ground next to a bin of ice water. I saw this one child drink a cup full. I shuddered, thinking there's no way that water is clean. Then another woman did the same. What was wrong with these people, and why was this cholera magnet in the middle of a dispensary?
I looked closer and the people were getting hot cups of tea from a container and then cooling them in this bin of ice water. What a lovely idea. We all quickly did the same.
