Oh no, now I've got it! I woke up last night to throw up and then spent the rest of the night violently ill. I can't hike today, so it's another day in Damascus and I don't even get to enjoy the food. I'll try some saltines and sprite and maybe chicken soup later. Thank goodness I am in a building with flush toilets and running water. A couple of times I know I would not have made it out of my tent in time to throw up. Other hikers have not been so lucky and got it out in the woods.
