Call Me Jeffrey Bernard

Posted in food, poisoning, the runs, Vietnam by expatatlarge on April 26, 2010

E@L is unwell.

A nibble on a tepid char sui bau, which I complained about, in Legends restaurant at the BigC supermarket (not my choice) in Hanoi and three days (so far) of gastro-intestinal flushing have ensued.

Now I know The Eagles meant by, “Don’t look back, you should never look back.”

My daily dose of medications has risen to 22.  (Not counting Cialis as that is not daily.)  I’d rattle if it wasn’t for what else is in my jejunem, ileum and colon.

We won’t even mention what happened in my trousers when I was walking back to my Hanoi hotel from my first coffee in 3 weeks…


Currently in Macau, groaning.  And not from the special pleasure of those special massages you can get here, allegedly.

    Hey mate that sounds exactly they way I was feeling in Vietnam before escaping to Singapore to try to catch you there.

    The Doctor in Singapore gave me charcaol tablets to clean out the bugs. It worked well and was a pretty quick fix. Better than all the crap they were feeding me in an attempt to treat me in Vietnam

    And of course it was Don Henley by himself, singing Boys Of Summer.

    22 medications – as we say in Ireland you have to be fit and healthy to take that much medicine. Get better soon.

    H-G: I think they are having trouble getting absorbed…
