So you want to hear about me getting sick by drinking some shit water, huh? You’re in for a treat… 
Don’t worry, there’s no photos in this one. 


Since you’ve read the Egypt post up to this point, you know what got us here. 
I had some tea on the felucca that wasn’t made from bottled water.

It took a full 24 hours before it hit me, but when it did, it hit hard. 
Sitting at the ‘Security Checkpoint’, I felt the glands in the back of my mouth starting to water, and my bowels getting increasingly active. 

Luckily nothing happened until we got back to the hotel. 
Unfortunately, though, I woke up in the middle of the night because of it. 

What happened? Well… I woke up thinking I was going to shit myself.
You know, when your ass puckers and you can feel the heat? Yeah. That. ALL OF IT. 

So, I ran to the bathroom and exploded. But, the feeling over watering glands never really went away, so when I pushed things out my back end, other things came out my front end, too.
Yep, that’s right, I was shitting and puking at the same time. My puke went all over the floor. 
The force from the puke made me shit even more, which in turn, made me puke again. 
It was a great cycle… 
I was on the toilet for a good 5-10 minutes, keeled over with my legs shaking. 

Once I got off the toilet, we had to wake up our host at like 2am to get a squeegee thing to clean up the mess. He cleaned it for us… the first time, anyway. Yep. There was more. I was far from done.

I crawled back into bed and tried to feel better. Our host checked my temperature and called a doctor to grab some meds for me. He told us if we needed him, to wake him up. 


We needed him. 


It happened again. Same thing. Only this time, it took longer.

So, Kaylin got up and went to wake our host. He didn’t wake up. Or maybe he did, and he just didn’t want to deal with it. Personally, I don’t blame him. 

Kaylin does not have a strong stomach. Especially not with puke.
She reluctantly went in after I was done and squeegeed the floor. 
Conveniently, we could push it all into the shower, turn the water on, and let it wash away. But still. 

After that, I tossed and turned for the rest of the night, and got maybe an hour sleep before we had to get up for our flight back to Cairo. I think the meds kicked in, and I threw up everything there was in me.

By the end of it, my ass was almost rubbed raw, and I damn near pulled every muscle in my stomach.

Thankfully it came and went, and I could get back to my vacation. 
But let me tell you, it hit me like a storm. Being sick sucks regardless, but being sick in a foreign land REALLY sucks. I’m a grown-ass man, and I just wanted my Mom. 

Moral of the story? Only drink bottled water! Don’t go through what I went through. That shit sucked.
