- The right arm has been swelling up from an infected wound (fell at a rusty spikestrip at a police-control up in Kenya, many weeks back..) and lately the entire arm, from hand to elbow, has swollen up and gives a 'burning' feeling when I try to use it.
Ive got medical advice from home via sms, that I should
see a doctor instantly. So.. we search for a hospital after the run today:
Its remote areas here in Southern Tanzania so there isnt many hospitals. I could find only one - a multi-bungalow thing under some palmtrees. I noticed the doctor had a few rusty instruments on the shelfs. "- Do you have pennecillin ?" - the answer "Pennecillin ???"
... I made a fast escape.
