Dubai, United Arab Emirates


3 December 2000 – Oh my goodness! Sick as a dog! I think from the salad I ate last night. Woke at 3:30 a.m. feeling pains in my stomach that developed into an upset stomach that minutes later became vomiting, which lasted until 7:30 a.m. After what seemed like 100 rounds of vomiting, I felt so weak standing over the toilet that I almost fell down. I put a bathrobe and towel on the floor allowing me to rest between vomit sessions. I felt stable-enough a few times to head back to bed only to wake with more pains and worse. By 7:30 a.m. I'd regurgitated my last bit – I don't think there was any morsel of anything left in me. I told Jim I felt like a noodle.

Mostly life on the road is glorious, but the longer I'm traveling the more I think I'm immune to Traveler’s Warnings.
