This week I'm recommending that you spend some time reading the blog of my friend and colleague, Dr Marcus Coplin. Marcus is currently traveling through throughout Eastern Europe and the Near East visiting hot springs and medicinal spas in the area, learning about the cultural and medicinal history of springs, and talking with doctors and physiotherapists who currently staff the springs. Additionally, he's exploring cultures and countries that are currently off the beaten path, as well as reconnecting with his familial roots in Greece and Turkey. It's all being written from an iTouch, so you'll pardon some of the misspellings, but Marcus is adept at capturing the history and essence of the places he visits in a conversational but evocative style. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
