Grand Chronic Hypoxia Tour throughout India July 2016 in the city of Kochi
In this series of consecutive blogs, you can read about this outstanding scientific tour. Each blog is dedicated to one city and one scientific concept presented in the conference “Extraordinary Adaptation to Chronic Hypoxia and Life at High Altitude”.
After visiting Mumbai with its beautiful airport, where we spent the night at a beautiful apartment and a brief tour of the Gateway to India, we flew to Kochi.
Hosted by Varkey, President of the Lions Club in Kochi, along with his wife, we were given the wonderful surprise that at 10:00 am we could go to the Mariott for a couple of hours to freshen up. It was so beautiful, and so comfortable. Our IPPA team, Prof. Dr. Gustavo Zubieta-Calleja, Lucrecia De Urioste Limariño, Natalia Zubieta De Urioste and Rafaela Zubieta de Urioste, along with our luxury travel team Prof. Thuppil Venkatesh and Prof. Shashisdhara, then moved to the Amrita Hospital, where Gustavo Zubieta-Castillo (Sr) and Gustavo Zubieta-Calleja (Jr) had participated several years back in a conference on Clinical Biochemistry.
This time again we were warmly greeted at Amrita by Dr. Sanjeev K. Singh, Medical Superintendent.
ONE CONCEPT INCLUDED IN THE CONFERENCE “Extraordinary Adaptation to Chronic Hypoxia and Life at High altitude”:
The extraordinary population of a city life La Paz, and El Alto that is like any other matronly in the world. Everyone lives busy and totally unaware of their life at high altitude. They are born here, grow, study, do sports, get married, have children and all in the chronic hypoxia environment uneventfully.

We again visited the unique antique shops in Kochi with the kind hosting of Varkey and his lovely wife Sarada Varkey.
