It’s night and my friend is standing on the veranda of our bamboo hut. With both hands he holds the fence. He is shaking and than pukes. I try to support him and say that he needs to lay down. He is moaning and pukes again. Than he falls tired in sleep. I begin also to feel dizzy and go to dreamland.
In the morning I don’t feel good. My stomach is hurting so I go to the bathroom. I feel very sick and fall on my knees. Than I throw over. Now it’s my turn to feel the pain. And I almost though I escaped. Everything is spinning. Like a drunk man I try to find the way to my bed. I can only see white before my eyes. Than I go KO and wake up later. Daan is feeling better and comes with some breakfast. I feel sick when I try to eat. But I give my best to get some energy. The whole day we are staying at our little bamboo hut. We feel a little bit better and talk about what kind of food could make us sick. Now we will try to be more careful. Food poisoning is not the thing I will wish someone on his holiday or travel journey. And yea you can see now how a paradise can become a real life horror!
Here is an article from KLM about how to avoid food poisoning:
Read it and learn it!
And here are 3 golden tips from me:
- Eat food on places where are a lot of other western people. If they eat it than it’s probably safe.
- Street food is very tasty but it’s not always made by the western rules of hygiene. So avoid it or not.
- Always and always wash your hands before eating!
