I’m afraid I don’t have any exciting travel experiences to report today. I am sick in the stomach. When I tell anyone that, the person wants to know what it was that made me sick, assuming that it was something I ate. I have no answer. I ate the same breakfast as everyone else in the hostel yesterday, but as far as I know, I am the only person who became ill, so I don’t think I can blame it on food. I also have a runny nose, which I doubt was caused by anything I ate.
I sat around yesterday morning, and by noon I was feeling bad enough that I spent the afternoon in bed. I am somewhat better this morning, but after a sparse breakfast of toast, coffee, and juice, I think I’m headed back to bed again. I hope I feel better by morning, when I take the 9 am train to Madrid.
