Woke up this morning with health complications: must have eaten
something which didn't agree with me. Don't think I've got the flu cause
I don't have a fever or chills and don't ache all over. It could be
food poisoning or, at least food/water incompatibility!!! I have not
been well in my upper or lower digestive tract all day!!!
I've been told by my expert restaurant advisor (Carl) that food poisoning
shows symptoms about 12 hours after ingesting certain bacteria, etc.
And it takes more than 12 hours to recover. Guess I won't be able to
catch that train for Pamplona as planned — I can barely managed
to catch the facilities when needed. I was pretty dragged out when I
had to pack and move my belongings up one floor to occupy a different
hotel room since the management had rented out my room already. I´ll
have to think back and try to remember which restaurant I used 12-hours
before so I don't go there again!!!
Healthwise — other than this upset digestive system problem —
things have been going pretty well. My control of sugar levels has been
excellent. My achy muscles and joints have recovered from the flight.
Maybe I just need some "catch-up sleep." Getting here, not
to mention the last three months of preparing for this trip, was quite
stressful. So — maybe I can allow myself a much needed rest before
I start hiking. I'll take an aspirin and call you in the morning!!
