Getting Healthy in Hong Kong


I do feel better than I did yesterday.

Yesterday, I didn't have a fever but I got one last night. Woke up shaking like Katherine Hepburn so I stumbled to the bathroom and turned the shower on full blast and let the heat and steam fill the room.

Then I put the space heater that the hotel provided -- they ran out of extra blankets (!) -- on the ironing board and aimed it at me on the bed.

I woke up about 5 hours later drenched in sweat. I think I broke my fever, or it broke me.

No fever now, my sore throat a tiny bit better than yesterday, and just some sniffles at the moment. I am friggin' tired which is a shame because I didn't do anything yesterday -- I stayed in from after breakfast until breakfast now.

I have plans for tomorrow (Thursday) so I need to get well and then Friday is New Year's Eve.

I got breakfast at Fairwood and you can see the "chicken" there in the shot.

During my meal I was fascinated by those guys in the back, near the chicken rotisserie.

I couldn't tell if they were from the head office or the health department.

My whole meal cost less than $3US. And for that kind of price, I shouldn't complain about the chicken, should I?
