Sigh, something like this always happens when I overdo it (those of you following me on twitter or facebook know what this is about.) Over the past 12 hours or so, I have come down with quite a nasty bug. It features coughing, muscle aches, slight chills, headache and general weakness. And before you ask, yes I have gone to the pharmacy (or farmacia in my case) to procure various and sundry meds and vitamin supplements. My roommate Stephan was ever so nice to bring me chicken soup (again, caldo de pollo) from around the corner, which I heartily downed. Its spiciness made me sweat a lot which in turn has me feeling somewhat better.
