During my visit to Yangon General Hospital in Myanmar, I was filming a Junior Consultant who was being interviewed about a patient currently on the Critical Care Unit. As the story unfolded I found it very emotional. It was very hot and very humid and I felt as though I was melting in the heat. I suddenly felt a gentle constant breeze. I continued to look down my video camera’s view finder to film the interview and just assumed that someone had switched on a fan. Once I had finished, I glanced over and saw a very smiley lovely lady (Sister Thida Swe) fanning me with a Burmese fan. I was overwhelmed as the interview took a few minutes and I couldn’t believe how long she had been there quietly fanning me. She then went away and came back with an ice cold electrolyte drink for us. I was overwhelmed by the kindness of the Myanmar staff.
