6. 2. Fever in Oaxaca

🇸🇮 Iz Pueble pičiva z busom proti Oaxaci, vozimo po hribih in se končno spustimo pod 2000m. Kaktusi in zelo suho območje, kar sva čutila že v Puebli na koži in v dihalih, nobene vlage, brez vode in piva in bombonov se ti kar hitro posuši grlo.

Nekje na pol poti začne Tino kuhat, bolečine v grlu se slabšajo, nekaj ni uredu. A ni juha edina stvar, ki paše, ko si bolan? Kot nalašč v Oaxaci zraven hostla italijanska restavracija, tu sigurno kaj najdeva – in res, super mineštra za Tino, Miha pa zmaže, kot pravi, najboljšo hobotnico na žaru. Še lastnik naju pride pozdravit in poklepetat v italijanščini 🙂

Spredaj hobotnica, zadaj pa Tina komaj gleda

Ponoči gre zelo na slabše, k sreči se javi cimra Anja – po izmenjavi informacij in žokanju z žlico po grlu (se mi zdi da vidim bele lise ampak saj ne vem kako žrelo ponavadi zgleda??) pravi, da zgleda angina, začnem z antibiotiki in se preostanek noči premetavam v obupu. Zjutraj nič boljše, grem še do zdravnika če je že tu blizu in če že imam Coris, pogleda in potrdi diagnozo. Poleg antibiotika doda še ene tablete in zvečer že veselo jem pašto, vročina je padla, grlo je boljše. S cimro ugotoviva, da ni čudno, ker so bile te tablete konkretna doza proti vnetju, bolečinam in vročini – in mimogrede, od 2007 odstranjene iz EU trga zaradi nevarnosti stranskih učinkov. Se strinjava, da jih po dveh dneh ne rabim več jest :))

Apetit je nazaj! Feeling much better

🇬🇧 On our way to Oaxaca, finally descending from above 2000 m altitude. This area is quite dry, which we could feel in Puebla on our skin and in our throats, no humidity, without water, beer or candy our throats went dry in minutes! Somewhere halfway into our bus ride, Tina’s fever is back and the throat pain is worsening. In Oaxaca, we find there’s an Italian restaurant next door to our hostel, and since soup is really the only comfort food when you’re ill, where best to try our luck. We hit the jackpot – minestrone for Tina and the-best-grilled-octopus-ever for Miha. The owner loves a chance to chat in Italian, too 🙂

Things get worse during the night and luckily Anja comes to the rescue with a remote diagnosis – after I poke around the throat with a spoon (can I see white spots or a am I imagining them??) she concludes it’s a bacterial infection. I take antibiotics and toss and turn for the rest of the night with fever and diabolic throat pain. Morning brings no release so I decide to see a doctor just in case – she confirms the diagnosis and prescribes another pill with antibiotics. By evening I’m feeling incredibly better, fever is low and my throat allows me to eat pasta, so good! No wonder – with Anja we later realize those pills are a strong anti-inflammatory drug which, interestingly, were taken of EU market in 2007 for side effects concerns. We both think I’m well enough to stop taking them 🙂
