Feeling Crappy

October 3, 2005

I feel crappy! It is 7am and I just woke up in Boquete, Panama with my
third day of diarrhea and fever and I am giving up on Imodium and
switching to Cipro.

I have been trying to make myself feel better by thinking about
Stanley and Livingstone and their epoch journeys though Africa. I just finished listening to “Into Africa”, which I bought from Audible. It is
a gripping tail which includes suffering from diarrhea (and much
worse) for much longer and under much harder conditions than I have
had to suffer. While it is non fiction it is as exciting as the best
novels I’ve read.

Now that I have a decent Internet connection more to follow shortly.


  1. Dear Jonathan,
    yes, i think you made the right decision in switching to cipro. i hope you feel better soon. make sure you keep yourself hydrated even if soyan has to spoon feed you in teaspoons :)

    make sure you are very careful about handwashing and food/water precautions.

    your travel advisor has spoken ;)

    otherwise you guys seem like you are having a great time :)

    stay well,
