Last week I got a touch of flue, that has been spreading around like wild fire in Kuwait. I did not pay much attention to it, as I anticipated a three days recovery phase. While jogging on Friday, I felt pressure building in my right ear, with an excessive thumbing, which got me worried. I went to the hospital and was diagnosed with a middle ear infection, 7 days before the trip, how lucky/unlucky can I be. Well I consider myself lucky as I am already on antibiotics and the whole thing should reseed by tomorrow. I cant dare imagine this should have happened on the trip.
