Come back from holiday looking like a new person...

For those teaching about tourism, an alternative type of case study is once again in the news: health tourism, or in this case, cosmetic surgery tourism.
I've blogged previously about trips to countries where dental treatment is cheaper, or where a hip replacement may be done, but now it seems that cosmetic surgery is also a draw to some countries...

This Guardian article describes some of the issues, and examples where this is already happening.
Search the LivingGeography blog for tourism, and you can find some further ideas for bringing tourism up to date.
