Cycle Touring India Saturday 15th October. Dhule. 

I eventually went back to the hospital at about 8 o’clock last night this time with Deepam’s father who also had an appointment with the same doctor!  (2 for the price of 1 maybe?)

After having another examination and looking at my xray he thinks that I’ve got allergic bronchitis! (Something new to add to my list of ailments!) which maybe does sort of figure, what with all the pollution about, my skin allergy, asthma which I’ve always had and a chest infection it’s all combined against me!

After giving me his verdict he then asked me what I wanted to do stay in hospital or continue on my tour! I said that I wanted to continue on my tour but I want to be better first and asked if it was ok to just stay where I am at the hotel, thinking I really don’t want to be staying in hospital I may never come out!

One of my reasons for not wanting to stay in, this was the treatment room

He agreed with me and thought that that was probably the best plan.

If I’m no better tomorrow I’ve got to go back and see him again otherwise he’ll see me on Monday, well I think that’s what was said!

After putting me on a nebuliser for 10 minutes they allowed me to go.

Felt so much better when I woke up this morning which was helped by the lovely smells wafting into my room, they were setting up for a banquet in the courtyard below my window and the cooking had started early.

Even ventured out for a little walk this afternoon just to see how I felt. I only walked about 500 yards down the road and funnily enough I ended up outside a little bar, well it would be rude not too! So I ventured in for one!

Yep! I’m definitely still not that well the beer just didn’t taste very nice at all!

I only had the one then went back to the hotel.
