To Belgrade

October 13th, 2007 by Nick Jacobs Leave a reply »

It’s about 11:30 AM on Saturday, 10/12/07, and I’m on my way to Kennedy.  That’s JFK Airport in New York City.  This will be a very long day as I wait until 7:00 PM for a connecting flight to Paris, and then run for 45 minutes through that airport to make my next fight to Belgrade. Once in Serbia, we will deplane and almost immediately make a speech to the participants of the World Health Congress on Cardiology.

I’m not exactly sure what we will be finding there, but, not unlike my trips to Nigeria and Bosnia, the one thing that I am sure that I will find will be wonderful, friendly people.  In fact, my brother, Charlie and a Serbian-born friend, Steve, will be there with me.

We will be meeting with the Minister of Health, the Head of Military Medicine and a Health Spa.  Then we will head home on Thursday.  It will be lots and lots of travel, lots and lots of talking, and not much sleep, but next weekend will give me plenty of time for that.

So, hang on to  your hats.  I’ll try to connect from Serbia, but, since getting Serbian dollars at the exchange here has not been possible, we’ll just see  how things go. 

The adventure begins.

    I simply wished to say thanks once again. I am not sure the things that I could possibly have created in the absence of the hints provided by you over such subject matter. It became a very difficult concern in my position, but observing a expert strategy you solved the issue forced me to weep over gladness. I am grateful for the guidance and then pray you find out what a great job you are always accomplishing educating many others all through your web page. More than likely you haven’t got to know all of us.

  4. I’m also commenting to make you know what a notable discovery my friend’s daughter had using your blog. She noticed plenty of issues, most notably what it is like to have an amazing coaching spirit to let folks easily thoroughly grasp a variety of extremely tough issues. You undoubtedly did more than our own expected results. I appreciate you for rendering those warm and friendly, trustworthy, explanatory and in addition unique tips on this topic to Ethel.
