Pretty Polly

It is normal for Anjanette's patients to surprise her in all sorts of ways:

1 the things they attribute their symptoms to for example I get a fever every time I drink cold water
2 the way they address her "Doctorcita Linda" which means beautiful little doctor
3 the fact that they will walk for hours to get to the clinic
4 the remedies they tried before coming to the clinic (like pouring urine on their skin)
5 the severity of their pathology
6 the number of skirts the quechua women wear

however today was a great surprise when a patient entered the clinic with a live parrot sitting on her shoulder!!
