WE WERE disheartened by the attitude of the couple who holidayed in Datca, Turkey, and had a brief sojourn in a hospital after a suspected case of rabies ("Your Holiday Disaster", Travel, 9 August). The nurse and orderly did not have to offer food and entertainment. Would a doctor in the UK offer a free holiday in his apartment to poor unfortunate tourists? Would waiters in British hotels give flowers to console? I think not. The report sums up the British expectation of a mini British system of rules, attitude, health system etc. Where are the thanks for the people who helped the couple?
