Chinese medicine

Well it had to happen sooner or later, I’ve got my first illness of the trip. My stomach feels a little rough, very acidy. But I’ve picked up a chesty cough with I’m putting down to the wet weather and the temperature swings between outside and air-conditioned buildings. So first thing this morning I’ve found a chemist and through the lost art of mine I’ve come back with a cough syrup that looks and tastes like every cough syrup ever – brown and foul. It’s another overnight train tonight followed by a boat on the Yantzee. There is some confusion if that is two or three days, but either way I’ll be glad to get out of cities for a couple of days and to rest my feet. I’ve no idea if we are on a big or small boat, but I’ll find out soon enough.
