Head, stomach, skin, hair. Seems my mind took to China more than my body too. Patrick too has some complaints of physical nature. But all of those who know us well, will be surprised to find out that I was the first one with a bacterial infection. It hit the only in Week 5, just when we were laughing our way through the local food scene, hearing stories of others who suffered for several weeks/months upon arrival.
The migraines were also no laughing matter. They actually hit Week 4 and continued on to 5. Many people suffer from them in the summers here. It is just so humid. And the continuous back-and-forth with air conditioning/humidity is simply not healthy.
So does this mean the honeymoon with Shanghai is over? No, not really, just temporarily put on hold.
