Iraq - A Resort Destination

Right across the incredibly clean [ cough, cough ] Tigris river is Sadr City, or also known as the slums of Sadr City. Two days ago, we were notified of an outbreak of hepititas E and were asked not to eat at a couple of the local restaurants in the "Zone."

We are already using bottled water for everything except to shower. Is that safe? The other day I forgot a bottle of water when brushing my teeth. I simply "cleaned" my toothbrush with the tap water. I know what I am buying at AAFES on Friday. I guess we'll see if I feel a little achy 16-30 days from now. Joy, joy, joy...

This is such a great place. The locals just love tourists. The food is just like home. Accommodations are a tad rustic, but there are nightly fireworks and regular air shows for your entertainment! Come and visit!! It is truly the next resort destination (small print: in 10 years or so).

I'll sign up. When does the tour start -- or in Dan's website, when days, hours, minutes, does it end.

Be careful with that water, sister. Dysentery ain't no joke. I'm reminded of this after having spent the last week on the toilet myself- just on good ole' Vancouver water.

I was really close to going to the hospital before I finally felt better.

My buddy Don got actual dysentery in Thailand a few years back- this guy was in really good shape- maybe 6-7% bodyfat, around 160 pounds at 5'9". He lost 40 pounds in 2 weeks, and the only way he could keep any fluid or sustenance in his body was daily I-V drip. He spent 3 days of his week in Thailand in a Bangkok hospital- the floor above, below, and the entire other wing being AIDS wards. Nervousness. Especially when you wonder if they re-use needles. Anyway, when he got back to Korea where we were stationed, he was still losing weight and had to go in every day to get a drip for quite a while after he came back. Not to mention being really careful with everything he ate- no dairy, fr'instance. Took him months to build his health and strength back.
