Feeling the antibiotics making me tired…

Loc: Ilha do Curupu
Acc: tent
Dist: 37,1
Start: 6:20 End: 15:20

The doctor said better start on Tuesday…one day more for the body to adjust to the medicine, as I felt quite tired physically…but this would also be one more day to lose on the shifting tide. I thought five days after full moon the current strength must be low enough to paddle against the current…basically yes, I can live with 3-4 km/h for a while.

Me and my trustworthy baby...


Desperately trying to access my already typed updates on my cellphone gmail app
Pos: here
Loc: Sao Luis
Acc: Sandra´s apartment

OH PEST ON IT… I was typing with some effort every night my full updates into the gmail app on my cellphone, saving it nicely as drafts as I was not able to send them off on the way, but it turns out that I can´t get the app working online again. My IT-skilled Peter can´t help either…
