My friend Wayan is very scared of a doctor.
When he has a toothache
he goes to the Dukun.
Then he sleeps with a lot of special leaves
in and around his mouth
and the next morning he wakes up healthy..
He had a slipped disc, he told me.
”Now for sure you have to go to a hospital” I said to him,
”this never heals itself”.
In the afternoon he went to a very special Dukun.
That night he slept with a lot of special leaves on his belly
and he sipped a very special drink.
Next morning he woke up healthy
and so on and so on....
