As a child, my twin brother and I used to joke we were going to dig our way straight through the center of the globe to India, or the other side of the world. This December I traveled there. Long flights are certainly not my idea of pleasure. However, the opportunity to travel halfway around the globe to Coimbatore, India and visit a world-renowned plastic hand surgeon was something I could not ignore. The additional opportunity to participate in a week long microsurgery course sweetened the deal to deliciousness.
