Poor guy, indeed traveling abroad is related to some risks, agree?
I remembered a funny case from my traveling experience, last spring I went to Germany and as I felt my throat was hurt, I asked my German friend to buy me some medicines for my throat and some vitamins. I gave him 50 euros as I did not have smaller value bills, relying on the fact that he will bring me the change. Can you imagine my face when he gave me back just 7 euros? Oh, German medical system!
