Oh to have the strength to walk again! With the effects of food poisoning almost out of our system we decided to head over to West Railay beach to catch some sun. This is the path within our ‘neighborhood’ of bungalows.
With any luck, last night will go down as the worst night of this journey. We were up for hours dealing with a bad case of food poisoning. All visual evidence points to yesterday’s lunch as the source of the problem. Needless to say, ‘Local Thai Food Restaurant’ has officially been black-listed.
The morning began with headaches and a need for water. Since the tap water is brackish here, we weren’t able to use the purifier. With all my energy, I made my way to East Railay and back to our bungalow – with plenty of water and saltine crackers.
Back in the Gilis, a german laughed at Americans’ tendencies to have rather large first-aid kits. And sure, ours takes it’s fair share of room in my backpack. But we’ll never question our decision to go big after last night’s episode. From medication to electrolyte tablets, everything we needed for a speedy recovery was right at our fingertips.
