Well, I have been hit by some sort of bug – laid low by a bad sore throat. As we pulled into the port of Sorrento, I surrendered to the medical department and went to sick bay. Just like an appointment ashore, I had to fill out a multipage medical questionnaire (I never can remember my prescriptions and dosages).
The Doctor, Dr. Tammy Valentine, of South Africa, diagnosed me with “Pharyngitis” which I believe is an acute fear of Pharaohs (I already knew I was afraid of them). She prescribed bed rest and antibiotics, which luckily Sally brings with us on these trips.
So I missed Sorrento and Rome, but by the second day was feeling much improved.
And now, on to Portofino, Italy.
