FRI NIGHT VID: Of Rocks And Needles: A Documentary On Climbing And Medical Aid

For the past decade, German doctor Volker Schoeffl and his wife Isabelle have been coming to Laos. The country, squeezed in between Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia is one of the poorest in the world.

Not only do they work but both are experienced climbers and so they spend their free time setting up new routes all across the country.
