I leave for India in 15 days and I am freaking out! It is not that I have never travelled before, but that I have never travelled somewhere that is so intent on killing me ( and my bowels). The malaria, the typhoid, the hep A in the water, the spicy food and only just a hole in the floor to poop in!
To conquer my growing paranoia I am going to become super organized and productive. I have decided to start packing today.
I have thus far decided that I need copious amounts of anti-shitting medicine, toilet paper and my stuffed manatee.
Good thing I have found a lovely website called herpackinglist.com It has been so much more informative than ‘pack toys’, and ‘cry until sleepy’.
**I have since renegotiated with Manny about his participation in this trip; after reading about bed bugs and lice and all other crawly thingy’s that would love to cuddle up in his fur. I’m starting to think I should shave my head before I go to for the same reason.
More to come after this regularly scheduled nap…
