Journal Entry:
Woke up feeling very not right. I had a slight fever and headache, but the problem was I was very shaky and unsteady. I tried to sleep, and when that failed I read or worked on my handheld. I thought about taking something, but I couldn't figure out what might help. Finally around five I started to feel better and ventured out of the hotel room for the first time. I was still feeling really weak, but that could just be because I hadn't eaten in twenty-four hours. I had a big diner, and felt ok, but I didn't really enjoy it - I was still worried about the way I felt. After diner I took a pair of pants to the tailor to have some zipper put on the front cargo pockets. They tend to fall open anytime I actually have anything in them.

Started going through my pack to see what I could send home. It might have been the mood, but I got brutal and pulled everything out of my pack. A lot of stuff is either going to get left behind or sent home tomorrow!
