Brain Check

On my way home just outside where I live I saw some people dressed up with white robes and equipped with a computer with some funny equipment. Turns out to be a free brain examination.

免费[miǎnfèi] be free of charge; gratis 检测[jiǎncè] examination
Free brain check

An old woman takes the opportunity.

Since the procedure took quite a lot of time I didn't have the patience to wait for my turn. Whatever you say Wen, the fear of getting a really disappointing result was not a factor, .

I'm not sure how they make their money, but I'm positively sure that they don't really do it just to help people. Maybe they sell medicine or want people to come for a another check at their hospital.

ADDITION 2006-Jan-17:
I find it a little bit ironic that this became my last post from China. :-) Mabye I should have taken that braincheck, because I'm planning to come back.

No wonder you thought like that as you've been living for quite a long time, and I'm 100% sure that they are not just give you free check but scare you to go to their hospital for another further check, and make you buy their drugs

Nice trip Johan!
