The one thing I didn’t want to do while we were away was get sick! And only 2 days in I found myself sprawled on the bed sighing and groaning over the detestable things of my digestive system. Was it the ultra spicy Green Mango Salad I had? Or was it the meal I ate in a restaurant that had NO sinks in the bathrooms? Seriously, there were just toilets. (Of course discovering this AFTER the fact.) John and I laugh that I should dedicate a blog posting entirely to health and safety violations we come across here in Thailand.
But today I am MUCH better after some Aleve and grapefruit seed extract we brought for just this type of thing.
So while I lay dying, John went out to discover more of our island and he cheered me up with what great photos he brought back!
And at the end of the day I was able to get out for dinner. (I looked for a place that served American food to keep the tummy happy- I ordered French fries… Yes I was THAT person who orders Western food on vacation. Sheesh, I was I embarrassed for myself, in front of myself.) John, on the other hand is eating Pad Thai everyday and he rates them accordingly. This is par for the course as he did the exact same thing in Greece eating tzatziki all around the islands at every chance he got.
Halfway through dinner, I just couldn’t wait to get horizontal again. So after nodding off at 9pm, John went out to the beach and played with some of his new photography toys.
Looking forward to getting out today and seeing all of it myself!
