I have had bi-lateral hip replacements and also have a bad back but have to use squat toilets in the school where I work in China. This is how you overcome the "getting up from the squat position" problem. Go to a hardware store or Ebay and buy a suction handle for lifting glass or other objects. Place the handle at a convenient height (ear level for me) and ...

I have asthma and spend plenty of time in China. Sometimes, especially in the winter in North China, the air is horrible (poor people burn coal for heat). Other times, things are ok. The last two years have been somewhat better. I have found it to be manageable. If you do not have asthma or another respiratory disease, I say "Don't Believe the Hype" and ...

According to US Customs and Border Protection, you don't need "a prescription of a doctor addressed to a CBP officer" if the medicine is in its original packaging with the prescription information printed on the packaging: Prescription medications should be in their original containers with the doctor's prescription printed on the container. It is ...

The short answer to your question is none, but only when asking about Canada, that is, at the federal level. Health insurance in Canada comes under provincial jurisdiction so it's up to each province to determine how they cover you abroad. That said, provinces don't have individual agreements with countries but rather they're required to provide care at ...

Just to add my two cents but I arrived at Shanghai 6 days ago and while my first reaction is "oh, it stinks so bad!", the actual air pollution statistics is not so bad as to consider cancelling your trip, especially a short trip. In Air Quality Index, Shanghai reaches "Unhealthy" label around noon quite often, but so do all of other Asian cities like Tokyo, ...

You should wait a couple days and if it doesn't heal by itself take a course of oral antibiotics penicillin or amoxicillin, any pharmacy can sell you these for 1-2 dollars. Be sure to complete the entire recommended course (google) even if you feel better, as multiple antibiotic resistant bacteria are a huge problem in Cambodia. I had a similar issue and did ...

The answer is nowhere. The National Institute of Health (Slovenia's main organization for vaccinations) doesn't consider the existing cholera vaccinations to be effective enough. Rough translation: Vaccination against cholera is poorly effective, and therefore is not recommended. I've received the same reply when contacting them by email: Sorry, ...

I travelled to Sri Lanka and South India last year but made the crucial mistake of leaving it pretty late before getting vaccinations and travel medicines sorted. As a result, I had to go to a local travel shop for my vaccinations at short notice, because the NHS clinics in my area were fully booked up - and paid through the nose for typhoid and hepatitis A ...

I do not know how this works for ACA, but I do know how it works for the earned income exemption, and I am going to guess the rule is the same. The IRS recommended getting an extension to file, paying what you think you owe (if any) with that form, due April 15. There is now a special Form 2350 for exactly this case, and you choose an extension date that ...

The answer is likely to be yes. For starters, kayaking on the Han river is a commonly practised water-sport both by local clubs, and by tourists with organised tours. Park authorities even rent kayaks out. Now, the water quality of the Han river has been radically improving since governmental efforts began making it a priority in 1982. The most recent ...

First, your numbers are off. Denver is officially 5280 feet (1609m) above sea level, which is the source of its nickname as the "Mile-High City". In most cases this won't be a problem. More specific answers depend on details like Your personal physical ability to adapt. Some adapt more quickly than others, and this doesn't necessarily correlate with ...
