Jaundiced Eyes

"All seems infected that the infected spy, As all looks yellow to the jaundiced eye"~ Alexander Pope


I should have been enjoying a chat, a beer and a bite to celebrate my 21st birthday, at the Red PianoRestaurant on 'Bar Street' in Asia's newest tourist haven in Siem Reap, Cambodia….instead I find myself in a nursing home, somewhere in Khar, Mumbai, with a needle sticking out of my metacarpal vein on my right hand, feeding me a mix of dextrose, saline and a yellow colured Bcomplex fluids.

Don't worry it is not all that serious….. The doctors think it is Jaundice….Hepatitis A to be more precise - most probably caused by arather stale and cold idli-sambhar I consumed 2 weeks ago, in a roadside restaurant outside Mumbai international airport. Factoring all these things I don't foresee seeing much sunlight in thecoming months. At least the Cathay Pacific doesn't penalize passengers for rescheduling their flights, bless them. Nurse, please up the Hydrocodone in my IV fluids please.

Come to Cairo & Celebrate.

But guess u will have to stay off alcohol for a year at least. Please don't even attempt an alcoholic drink for a year, the repercussions are life ending. The liver cant take the stress.

Come to Cairo & celebrate with the camera. Acco at our place. open invite to u as long as we are in this country.
