Couldnt sleep again and the weather is really pissing me off! haha On Sunday, I'll take an overnight sleeper bus to Shenzen (China/Hong Kong border), so I decide to wait until Sunday to go biking, hoping that the weathr will be better and thinking that I can tire myself out and possible sleep a bit on the bus. Now, this is what happens when Trent thinks - relax today and bike tomorrow becomes get food poisoning today, wretch and heave for 6 hours, go to the hospital, waste the day away b/c I feel like crap and not sleep on the bus b/c my tummy still hurts! So that night I go back to the movie restaurant and catch a flick and then two hours later I was convulsing every 30 minutes, thinking that once the food left my body it would stop...call me a slow learner because we saw what happens when I think...but it doesnt stop and I'm dry heaving over a 3 story balcony at 3 am and end up at the hospital at 330 am with Wei. Man, that guy is cool, he takes me to the hospital, refuses to go home because he says they might need to ask me something, holds my IV bag while I vomit, doesnt get any sleep that night, and is only worried about me!
Anyway, at the hospital I get two injections and 3 IV bags and stay there for 6 hours and go back to the guesthouse at 930 am green, green, green. My body is so sre from being sick and uncomfortable and I ask Wei if he knows an at home massage therapsit and he sends for Joan, who gived me this great full body massage (for $6) and in Chinese massage they talk about you needing to release heat and, man, about an hour after she left my body turns into this raging furnace and I was pumping out heat all day and felt good enough to take the bus for Hong Kong.

Wei sees me off and the bus is decked out and a picture does it best, but it's really nice and you can lie down and sleep while you travel and its small, but pretty comfortable actually.
