I was sick for the past four days or so. Super sick. I was afraid to eat food, and I love eating food. I think it was the combination of the awful car ride back from Pai and the sketchy looking “pork” I ate in Chiang Mai. Either way, it made my homestay relatively uncomfortable. Urai kept making me delicious Thai food, but I was too afraid to eat it. I ate a bit of everything out of politeness, but faced the consequences soon after. Bah.
Even through my sickness, I find it hard to really complain. Gosh, I just went on a month-long paid vacation to Thailand. I met a ton of amazing people, ate some delicious food, saw some cool temples, and got to play with tigers and elephants. I am an incredibly lucky person.
Another plus: I get to play soccer again! My hamstring seems to be completely healed and I have been running and lifting weights on my legs again. Yay! I’m playing in a pick-up game on Thursday on a rooftop in Futian. It should be interesting!
