844 days, 20,256 hours, 1,215,360 minutes, or 72,921,600 seconds. That is the approximate duration of my world tour. I never wanted it to end and now, in a manner of speaking, I suppose it never has to. If you wish to go by country do so by clicking on one above. They are numbered in the order I visited them, more or less. If you enjoy reading about it even a tenth as much as I enjoyed living it then you will not have wasted your time. Grab a refreshing beverage, settle in a comfortable chair, and make a journey across the world, experiencing it as I did. Then get off your ass and check it out for yourself. You're not getting any younger.

What's Up Doc? (Bali, Indonesia)

May 6th, 2009 - I went to el doctor because I was feeling a little run down. Turns out I am fine but a wee bit anemic. I thought this might be the case as I often felt like I'd ingested a sleeping pill even when I had not. I think the food is most likely the culprit. Luckily, I brought along multivitamins which should do the trick. Had I been taking them all along the problem would probably never have manifested itself.

The clinic (BIMC) is actually quite modern and offers all the necessities. This makes sense as it was established with foreigners in mind. The cost? Well, consultation, blood test, thyroid test, glucose test, and stool check added up to about US $130. A mere pittance by US standards. A night in the hospital, were it necessary, would run about $500. Not a sum I want to shell out but this is still relatively cheap I should think.

And about the stool sample. You would think that such an endeavor would require a slightly bigger container than the one for urine. Not so. In fact, I think it may even be smaller. I love a challenge and faced this one head on (figuratively speaking of course). My superior hand eye coordination served me well.

After four separate trips to the mechanic my bike appears to be running ok...for now. I do not relish the thought of driving there for a third straight day. Cross thy fingers.
