Here now and now here or nowhere

The title of this blog comes from a play on words that "now here" is also the same letters as "nowhere" just with a space added in the middle. I am always trying to get better at being in the here and now, and I've always been a bit of a joker so that is why I chose this name.

Giving Blood - Luang Prabang

I think I've mentioned giving blood on either this blog or my twitter account but I just received some great pics so I thought I'd share them here.

I had never given blood before as I was usually two much of a wimp and also when I was fatter they always had trouble taking blood from my veins. But I'm thinner and less scared than I used to be so why not give blood in a developing country where it may be more needed. Actually, it was more needed as my blood type, O+, is rare and highly sought after in Lao.

I went with my friend Kelly who I met here in LP and both of us had never given before and were a bit timid. But both him and I did it and felt better afterwards. Well, we felt lightheaded first, then better.

Come on, just stick it in me and let's get this over with. I'm a bit nervous here.

It's in. Don't look. breathe... breathe. actually it wasn't so bad.

Only one liter? let's go for 2!
