Hi Mum and Dad,

Hope you are well.
I have just been through the worst case of food poisoning in my life. 48 hours of being curled up on my bed, battling a nasty fever and trying to rehydrate my body whenever I could hold any fluid down. Some friends from my guest house have been a big help, getting me medication and checking on me. The owners of the guest house have been looking after me too, with soups and light meals. In fact, if I was to have gotten sick anywhere during my time in India I would have chosen here. A travel hazard with a good ending.
I am up and about again today, although still weakened by the experience, and may continue to rest for another couple of days before I travel to Delhi. It may mean that I won’t have the time left to visit Agra and the Taj Mahal, but sometimes you have to accept that it’s the way it was meant to be. Health comes first!

Love to all back home,
