What are the chances of getting a cold in Sri Lanka?
Just as we arrived in a gorgeous beach resort where I was looking forward to swimming and relaxing, with very little warning I started sneezing.
Within minutes I had swollen glands, blocked ears, a runny nose and all the horrible symptoms of a head cold.
For twenty four hours I was as limp as the cold flannel on my forehead.
There’s nothing worse than having a temperature in a hot climate, I managed to limply cool off in the pool and the sea before discovering the benefits of paracetamol. It’s fair to say I was a wet blanket.
It seemed like such a waste of a lovely resort but then again, it was probably the best place to feel ill.
It’s ironic as I hadn’t had a cold for a long time so I wasn’t impressed with the Sri Lankan head cold.
Twenty four hours later the sneezing and temperature had eased and the coughing had begun. I was on to the congestion stage.
On the road to recovery.
