I’ve been biten by a spider. Today we spent 5 hours in the emergency room next to many people that were in a much worse state than me. I’m going to be fine but I think someone actually died while we were there. The Mexican woman behind us most likely had a miscarriage and a middle aged man who appeared to have broken a rib is probably still waiting. I can’t wait to watch ‘Sicko’ when we get home to find out more about how terrible the United States health care system really is.

My foot is fine, I had to get a shot and I’m on a 10 day course of antibiotics. Unfortunately this isn’t my first visit to the doctor since we’ve been here. I had to rush to one in San Francisco for an issue I’d rather not blog about. I think I’m cursed.

Anyway, the trip is going really well apart from these little hiccups. Will keep you posted on what we get up to next.


P.S. We’ve finally managed to upload some photos to flickr!
