So 10 days ago I had a couple of nights with fever. I did what I usually do, that is went to bed at 8pm, hoping to sweat it away.
I did sweat it but not away. Fever turned into a massive sore throat, and just as I thought that was over, I invited a couple of friends for crepes , they brought wine, we played cards against humanity, really fun.
But the next morning I had a massive cold with headaches. So after 10 days of ups and downs I called the PC doctor who recommended antibiotics. FOR THE FIRST TIME IN LIKE 15 years !
What are you doing to me, Ecuador !
And to make things worst my electric shower literally burnt and melted – short circuit – and seeing the electric pannel – a plastic thingy all melted – really freaked me out.
Really scary considering the fact that this thing was 20 cm away from the shower, on the wall.
As you can see, though, now it´s normal looking.
Being sick sucks ! I hate it with a passion.
It´s even harder when:
-you have to cancel all the seriously looked-forward to activities ( fishing in Cajas with colleagues, jazz concert with host sister)
-the host fam invites you to a massive family reunion (with music and dance and a million people who most likely will ask you how much you make and if you´re CIA) eventhough you look like shit so you have to justify yourself explaining resting is the only thing you want right now without offending them.
In the end it´s all good, here I am, just finished “Central Do Brasil”, moving on to “Tarnation” and my host mum brought me a plate of yummy food for lunch, which was extremely nice of her.
Now let´s hope those antibiotics work.
Next week is exam week, I need to figure out when to go to school because I´m tired of reading a book in the teachers´lounge because classes are cancelled and everyone is mad busy and stressed.
Hope you´re well.
