A True Claims Story

  • I was bitten by a monkey at the Batu Caves in Kuala Lumpur. I went to a nearby clinic and they gave me a rabies shot, antibiotics to take for 4 days, pain medicine, and anti-inflammatory medicine.

  • I was on a full day tour to Chacaltaya and Valle de la luna and later that night I was unable to sleep as I started to get dizzy, had difficulty breathing, and had strong pains in my chest. The next morning I contacted World Nomads emergency assistance and I was directed to Clinica del Sur froom La Paz where I stayed 24 hours under medical surveillance being treated for altitude sickness..After being discharged from hospital, I continued on my next tour yet suddenly I felt a strong pain in my chest and headache so I returned to the medical clinic for an hour of oxygen treatment. The next morning I flew back to Lima (sea level).
