Another morning of surfing, an afternoon lounging about and then a couple hours exploring a weaving shop near Playa Principale. That summed up our lovely Monday in Puerto Escondido. At the end of the day, however, I was so tired I went to bed early. It wasn’t until the next morning did I discover that I was to be shackled to the toilet the whole day… if you get my drift. I am not completely surprised that this should happen; it could have been something I ate or all that ocean water I drank while surfing. Regardless, I was careful with hand washing and eating but in the end I would much rather it be me than one of my children. Thankfully, we came well armed with remedies: Pepto-Bismol, Immodium, re-hydration salts and Cipro. I believe that I am on the mend. Hopefully, tomorrow I will set free from my shackles!
