A journal entry from: 6 COUNTRIES IN 6 WEEKS

Call it a logistical dropping of the ball or denial but I am sitting here today, 4 weeks out in a state of avoidance on the one thing guaranteed to make any travellers hair stand on end .... injections!!!  Will it be the dead arm, the poison on the tongue or simply the mosquito bite effect this time and exactly how many days spending money is the pleasure going to cost me?!?! (Good thing its in Australian dollars).

But thank god for small mercies it seems that Fiji, Costa Rica and Thailand all have the same health hazards and for the USA there are the optional ones such as Collagen, Botox and the miracle Fat Disolving ones on late night TV for 3 small payments of $199 plus postage and handling.

On that note, I had better phone a doctor as I dont really want to be reporting a serious case of Hep A from experiencing dodgy Tico Bean Stew or worse still be laid up in bed screaming at the doctors "what do you mean my lips are too thin, just give me the damn collagen!!!!!!".  Now where is that credit card ...
