My morning pack-up was watched closely by an annoying crowd of onlookers who insisted on watching me even as I took yet another messy shit in my toilet hole. The ride went surprisingly well, despite how I was feeling. On reaching Etawah, I once again faced problems finding accommodation. I was turned away by about six hotels before I came across one willing to take me. The others were either not registered to take foreigners or were fully booked by a wedding party that is taking over the town for the weekend. I am happy with the one in which I ended up: a small, non-descript place run by one guy. I checked in, hung out my tent to dry and heated some water for a wash. After getting clean, I went for a walk in town to buy medicine and food. I’m going to hit my system hard with slightly higher than recommended doses of antibacterial and probiotic drugs and see what happens.
