Baku Bowels

Alas, there is a gastrointestinal alliteration for every city on earth. Baku Bowels joins the likes of Delhi Belly, Cairo Colon, and Shanghai Stomach as things you want to avoid while travelling. Trust me.

Not that anyone wants to know about my bathroom habits, but I feel it necessary to compare the inevitable digestive abominations that have afflicted me.

The Baku version seems to start with a bout of queasiness, followed by an insatiable urge to vomit, then a series of painful minutes on the toilet, finished off with two days of eating yogurt and bread three times a day.

Must've been something I ate.

I don't remember you have problems with Montezuma's Revenge or Kasbah
Kolon (though the rest of us did). But they sure seem to be catching up with you now. Sorry to hear this. Hope you are feeling better soon.

Hilarious ya Kent...but do get well soon ! :-)

p.s. this strangely reminds me of you telling the Aussie guy on my team (while in Egypt, at Farzina's party) that it's okay to drink tap water. Sure you remember that :-) Poor fella didn't even have any "training" prior to that episode...

Haha...ya, I remember that. I gave him an unbiased review of the tap water situation, as I recall.

Poor guy.
