Hey Folks, well I am back... 'eh kinda. I am actually still in Cairns and have hardly left this little town except for a brief trip to Port Douglas. In fact, in the past five-or-so-days I have hardly left my hotel room. Last, Thursday (the day of my presentation!!!), I came down with a pretty horrible fever and what I would later find out to be is a respiratory infection (thanks Cairns 24hour Medical Clinic). I am now on loads of Panadol, antibiotics, and decongestants. And yes, Mom, I am drinking lots of fluids. I am starting to feel better but to be honest, I am just really ready to go home. I fly back to Saudi-land tomorrow, hamdulilah.
Unfortunately this trip has turned out to be more of a sticky mess than something sweet and I am pretty bummed out about that. A girl doesn't go to Australia everyday and I soooo had my hopes set on meeting up with Koalas, Kangaroos, and Wombats. But, one good thing that has come from all of this sneezying-coughing-feverish stuff, is that I know there is at least one person out there that really cares about me. Someone that was willing to give up his fun-in-the-sun vacation time to take me to the doctor, sit with me while I slept, and get me more medicine. Thanks mi amor.
Thank you again to all of my guest bloggers! It was a lot of fun having you, please visit again!
