Home in Port Charlotte
Under the weather
Puerto Rico was great, as usual, but heavy rains on Saturday kept us from touring the rain forest and the beaches. Instead we toured a bunch of back roads and small towns, stopping at roadside cafes for cocktails and sampling local foods. My colleague, David, who is from PR, has a sister who is the administrative assistant to a Puerto Rico Senator. She arranged a tour of the capitol builing. It was not only beautiful, it was a great lesson in world history. We came back to the mainland late Saturday night and stayed one more night in Miami. By the time we got home on Sunday I was feeling poorly with a sore throat, sinus thing and terrible body aches. I slept 11 hours Sunday night and awoke fully sick on Monday. Two of the people we flew home with also came down sick on Sunday. Gotta love that air travel. I cancelled my Tuesday and Wednesday schedules but hope to feel better enough on Wednesday afternoon to head east to Fort Pierce. I am scheduled to teach an excavation class there on Thursday and I think I can make it.
