After I got caught in the thunderstorm walking back from the ruins that I mentioned in my previous post, I was pretty well soaked to the skin. Remember, I had to wade the streets in some fast rising dirty water. The next day, I got pretty ill with a respiratory infection. Maybe I picked up something from the flooded streets. I will probably never know.
You can see from the photo below, how sloped the streets are and believe me, water can run through them quite fast.
In any event, Jessina, my teacher at the school accompanied me to the pharmacy to buy anti-biotics. In Honduras, you don’t need a prescription for many drugs.
It took a couple of days for me to recover, but once I did, I had time to reflect back on some of the errors I had made trying to navigate that brutal thunderstorm and it’s aftermath. I should have carried my little travel umbrella, and I should not have waded through the dirty water in the streets. Lesson learned!
