Editor’s Plumbing Update 9

Mike Booth EditorEleven days ago, on October 21, we mentioned here that ¡Alegria! editor, Mike Booth,would be on sick leave “for a couple of weeks.” It didn’t take that long. Booth was out of Granada’s Ruiz de Alda hospital with a set of shiny new coronary arteries just eight days later, and now he’s back stoking up the fires at ¡Alegria! The Joy of Spanish Living. Booth found his experience in a Spanish hospital astonishing. “Everything functioned like clockwork. Everybody smiled and laughed at my jokes, and I was out of there–new–in record time.

“It was like a brief holiday in a high-tech Spanish village,” says Booth. “I never thought of Spain precisely as a world leader in medicine, though it is true that this country has the largest, most-advanced organ transplant program in the world. In fact, after spending eight days on the inside, I wonder if this isn’t what Spain should be exporting: some of those wonderful doctors and nurses.”
