Front of US Yellow Health Alert Card

Back of US Yellow Health Alert Card

Exotic travel also has some drawbacks. For several years I was given this yellow health alert to carry after each of my trips to Asia, Africa, or the lesser-known parts of the Middle East.

From the back:  "The patient presenting this card has recently been abroad, and could have been exposed to a communicable disease not commonly seen in the United States." Well, travel is supposed to expand one's horizons.

This is a ticket for dinner and a show at the Raffles Hotel in Singapore. Aside from being the oldest hotel in the country, the Raffles has another distinction: it was here that the Singapore Sling was invented. This dinner included a Singapore Sling.

Hong Kong - Canton Train Ticket   Ticket for the Alaska Rail Road

This is my ticket for the Kowloon  - Canton (Hong Kong -Guangzhou) Railroad. The corner is torn to show that the ticket was used.  n 1991 when we made this trip, Hong Kong and China were separate countries with very uneasy borders. There were several security checks. At that time, Chinese trains had two classes: "soft-sit" and "hard-sit". We traveled "soft-sit", roughly first class with upholstered rather than wooden seats. It was probably a mistake, there were no other travelers in our coach. Click here to see the train. "railroad ticket"  "RR ticket"  "train ticket"
