Jinja to Kampala, sick day

Doctor suggests a break today from cycling, to recover. I take that advice, but exert myself a little too much after arriving in Kampala by truck.

Body crashes. Chills. Fever.

A meandering, humid taxi trip through Kampala rush hour to the hospital for blood tests. Start with an IV with some “fluids”. Also, some drugs.

Admitted overnight.

Tests suggest a viral infection. Sweating like crazy now as my immune system kicks into gear.

We shall assess in the morning.
