New Blogger Welcome!

We have a new blogger in the medblogosphere: a warm welcome to Borneo Breezes! This is a delightful blog written by Traveling Doc, a female physician of Canadian origin who is teaching in the Master's in Public Health program at the University of Malaysia in Sarawak. For those of you, like me, whose world geography is not as finely tuned as it might be, Sarawak is on the island of Borneo, the third largest island in the world, located a few hundred miles north of western Australia. It sits smack on the equator (so which way does the water swirl down the drain? Do they have drains?).

She made her Grand Rounds debut in Vol 2, No 44, In the Garden, at
Medical Humanities blog. We were grouped together in The Greenhouse, where "you can grow specimens in specialised conditions. The blogs in this section are revealing of cultural differences and show the value of different perspectives." Our blogs are definitely doing that, while coming from opposite ends of the earth and precisely opposite climates.

I enjoy reading her blog, and corresponding with her. Stop by and visit for a glimpse of something completely different.

What a marvellous welcome. You know that lovely comment, I think it was Barry Commoner made but maybe Paul Ehrlich about lights winking off in the planet, in reference to loss of biodiversity, well I have had the reverse, lights winking on in my sitemeter. You were wishing you had even more daily readers, but I think you have something even better you have readers who follow your advice. Thank you for this wonderful welcome.
