Was it something we ate?

Was it the beef in that bowl of noodles, or the cucumber on the side?  Or how about that broccoli we tried cooking at home?  Maybe the not-so-clean looking set of dishes at the restaurant, or the tea brewed with the local water?  Whatever it was, both of us have come down with your garden-variety food poisoning.  We haven’t eaten anything solid for the past 36 hours outside of a handful of crackers, while living on Sprite and chicken broth.  JM has put classes on hold until this passes along.  Thank goodness Leo is none the worse for wear- we planned all along to keep him away from questionable food, and have only just started giving him rice cereal and bananas at home.

My classmate from Dubai grew up in India, where he says sanitation is much worse.  For him China seems much cleaner, and he rarely has digestive problems.  He has seen that Westerners typically don’t have the same tolerance for local cuisine, and often get sick.  Although we’re thankful for Western sanitation, we would pay a little money for a tougher stomach right now!

On a positive note, Leo’s two bottom teeth have finally broken through!
