Is it possible to start a Turds on Tour Index.

Perhaps a Barmy Army Turd Shirt?

Personally I was firmish all my tour and did a few decent logs as well.

Lovely food tho.

Er.... will have to let you know on this one.
Have just removed a couple of ticks from the back of my leg.
Apparently many of the diseases which you can pick up from a tick don't show symptoms for a few weeks.
I must have picked them up whilst in the forest at Srimongol or swimming in the river there a couple of days ago.
Bilharzia is also an option for me due to the swim, again I won't know for 4 to 6 weeks.
The old tummy is OK though.


Would have thought a visit to the GP was a wise precaution John, especially to be made aware of warning signs.
I personally picked up two STD's, and that was just from the Grand Prince pool !!!


I'll be fine mate, know the signs to look for and anything I may have picked up can be treated.
Removed another tick today, poxy things!

Test results for all the nasty stuff have come back negative, which is nice.
Need another test for Malaria apparently, not too bothered about that!

In some ways, yes. However I was quite unwell when we came back, with all the right symptoms and of course with ticks attatched to my leg! Jay wouldn't touch me with a barge pole. Glad I had the tests, and of course that they are all fine, as it's our anniversary today, so feeling lucky. Have the champagne on ice!

Of course it is a bit disappointing as I was hoping to win first prize for "most unusual disease".
There is a prize.....isn't there?

Excellent.

Anyone else been to donate blood - and been refused ! Simply because I had BEEN to Bangladesh. Male nurse tried to convince me that doctors and travel companies 'mislead' their patrons about the malarial risk in the Desh.
As the phrase goes 'you could'nt make it up'.

Oh and belated Anniversary wishes to the Wicketses (? what is the plural)

For obvious reasons they're very careful about who they allow to give blood. Some of the criteria seem a bit over the top. They don't allow people to give blood for a few months (how long depends on how good the screening facilities are in a particular area) after visiting a country where there is a malaria risk, and I suppose that for the purpose of their rules Bangladesh has a malaria risk. I don't know whether they're still doing it, but at one time they were even turning away people who had recently visited Canada due to the risk of West Nile Virus!
