I’ve been feeling pretty crap for the last few days with a cold and yesterday I had the first warning signs that my good tummy luck is about to run out… Delhi Belly struck on the day I have a 6am bus ticket to Chandigrah! Oh dear, not good. Because I felt it brewing yesterday I skipped dinner, overnight I managed to ‘cleanse’ my system completely… so I decided to take anti-nausea pills and panadol, drink only a little bit of water and risk the bus.
I arrived on the outskirts of Chandigrah mid morning and got an auto rickshaw to a hotel, booked in and crashed. I woke up about 6pm and went to get water and bananas, took some rehydration salts and went back to bed. I then woke up at 10pm feeling very refreshed thinking Id slept in until 10am the next day… luckily before having a shower and getting dressed I worked out it was still evening and went back to bed again! I finally woke at 8am feeling a lot better for having nearly 24hrs sleep!
Hooray I survived my first bought of delhi belly! I must say it was noted that within days of being released from Raj’s care I got delhi belly – this must be a true testimate to how well he looked after us on tour!!! Thanks Raj!
