News & Activities
In the Period between 26-29/3/05.
The trip was to Seychelles which is a place that I will
never thought to go without the others in that trip whom were
selected by “Sanofi avantis” We went by Emirates Airline through
Dubai to Maha Island which the capital of Seychelles. On 26/3/05
we reached the airport and it was a small, clean but primitive
port. It was very busy and mostly is making more money than the
extravagance airports in the Gulf. The first impression was that
the island was hot and humid place but exotic and beautiful. I
do not know what the others thought but I thought it is like New
Zealand with its natural beautiful dark green plants.
We were resided in “The Plantation Club” which was an excellent
selection for our activities. The program were busy from the
first day we started listening to lectures of our friends Dr.
Yousif Al-Hefny about sinusitis, Dr Amr Shaash about cross
fertilization in the Gulf and Wael Yousif abou Antihistamines.
In the evening we went to “Moyenne’s Island” which took about
twenty minutes. It was very strange setting, when we reached the
island we faced the “Moyenne’s traditional moutya drums as if we
were in old Hollywood movies. Those songs were about the
plantation then we took our meal and left.
On 27/3/05 we attended the lecture of Dr. Basel Al-Dejeani about
Infectious Management. I liked his presentation because it
included his special experience in the Gulf. Amr Shalash and
Maged Michel presented their topics . We spend the rest of the
day on the wonderful beach which has a special character.
On 28/3/05 we went to Praslin and La Gigue islands. Praslin has
a heritage of natural palm, the valle De Mai. It is the home of
the rare and most bizarre Coco-de-mer palm which has its fruit
like buttocks. The tour guide told us that it gets pregnant for
twenty five years until it delivers another plant. We then went
to La Diage lodge but one thing I noticed was the saviors and
other tourist articles were expensive because none were
manufactured in Seychelles.
It was a nice brake for the doctors working in the private
sector in the Gulf as all has a vast experience and wisdom in
their work. The government sector do not need vacations or brake
because they have a chronics vacation….
