Trip to Hong Kong, Day 8

  • 3rd Jan, 2005 at 8:45 AM

Flora and mom went off shopping, while Dad and I met up with a family friend for dinner. Last night's minor ordeal or food poisoning seems to actually be stomach flu, as I feel absolutely miserable.

So miserable, that I've been unable to keep up my enthusiasm for taking pictures of random, small details. I think I'm going to prevent us from going to see the big Buddah tomorrow, as everyone seems to be complaining that they are ill.

I don't think Hong Kong is a very tolerable place for people like me. My immune system has the protective strength of a paper doiley, so I'm surprised that I have lasted an entire week before succumbing to sickness. But now, my back aches, and I can barely type unless I take acetaminophen.

There is a silver lining to this cloud of suffering; I get to lounge around and actually think which is something I have sorely missed these past couple of days. I typically wake up, have breakfast, and am shoved out the door. By the time I get home, I'm the first one to collapse in exhaustion. Maybe this slower pace will allow me to enjoy my vacation?
