I had a severe reaction to the curried chicken I ate at the cruiser appreciation dinner on Saturday night along with others, so yesterday I stayed in my bunk for most of the day. It turns out that there are 3 million US cases per year so that means one in every 100 people get it annually. Even though it is very common, this is the first time I can ever remember getting it. I drank lots of water and today I am well again. This has been a wake-up call for me to be extra diligent about washing my hands. I was always told to be very careful when traveling and only drink bottled water and not to eat the local food. Well slowly I have learned to eat just as the locals do and I haven't had any problems........up to now. From here on in, I will think twice about eating cooked chicken, especially if it has lots of spice in it.
