    Now that’s a great blog about the real thing. Can’t find this much detail anywhere else.

    Thanks, Hal. And I could’ve gone into so much more gruesome detail …

    Hey there John! Glad you are on the mend – love the post and your blog. Funny thing, I just returned from Rome on the 22nd. The last 4 days I was in the city I caught the flu and developed a pneumonia. As I am from the US and it has been sweeping across this country faster than Formula One racers. My symptoms never got as bad as they did the first time around two months ago when I caught the flu on a business trip to CA. I don’t typically get sick so this was kind of eye opening, painful, depressing and a kick in the pants to teach me how to push through and get the job done no matter what.

      Thanks, Laura. It’s all over Rome, too. I think I picked it up from two guys talking about their recovery.

    Hi John, I just laughed my butt off. Oh, the times I have been sick, vomiting my way around my travels. For me, though, it’s always been in Mexico. Never in Europe. Hopefully t​hat won’t happen. Ugh. Thank you for this honest and hysterical post. Look forward to more. 🙂

      Thanks so much, Anna. What in the world, er Mexico, are you eating all the time down there? Don’t eat fish tacos more than one mile from the sea (Which brings up another rule: Never EVER eat seafood in Nebraska) and don’t eat rice that appears to be marching off your plate. Europe has no issues. Even the pizza in Italy tastes like health food. The problem with Europe is you get reverse culture shock. When you go home and eat crappy American food your healthy stomach won’t handle it. I once spent four months in Asia and on my first day back in the States I ate a large Domino’s pizza by myself. I was in Honolulu and never made it to the beach. Sure saw a lot of that covered parking lot I ducked into for an hour. Safe travels — and take Pepto. It really works. Hope you read my blog today about the Italian election. Hope that doesn’t make you sick.
