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.
