I hadn't been there long and suddenly... Whoom... 'Norovirus' descended...
At least I didn't pay a lot of money to be sick like the 200+ people on the luxury cruise ship making it's way round New Zealand who came down with this virus, described in the newspapers as a 'Pukefest'... How horrible!
But horrible it was... I spent the next two days staggering between my bed, the bathroom and eventually made it outside again to my chair in the sun.
After sleeping for what seemed like days I gathered the energy to have a shower and find some clean clothes and decide I was still alive... I think! And eventually went to have a look at the river...
Phew... I didn't move for some days and although it is only overnight parking nobody came to move me on.
Do make a large sign 'No Norovirus Wanted'
Another week has passed. I went back to Pohara and have been back in town again and back to my yoga classes... Still feeling a bit fragile... But definitely alive.
