The Barkers do not have cholera!

After spending two days recovering at a clinic just inside Uzbekistan the Barkers finally made it to the Bukhara bus garage on the evening of the 29th. Although they are still not clear about the exact cause of their illness they were relived, and little shocked, to be told by the clinic that "you do not have cholera".

The clinic in Uzbekistan was friendly, sympathetic and made only token charges for drugs in complete contrast to the one in Turkmenistan that seemed to see them only as a source of dollars!
