We were warned from the very beginning not to drink the water here. We are not to use it to brush our teeth, and we are not even to use our dishes unless they are dry.
But - the habit of sticking your toothbrush under the tap and brushing was just too much for me to break. I'd always remember after I'd had the toothbrush in my mouth, or better yet, as I was putting it away.
Well, my habit has come back to bite me. I was sick last night. Violently, horrendously sick. I don't want to disgust you with details, but let's just say that both ends were going so strongly that my body still aches from it today.
I hurt. My stomach feels like I've been punched by Mike Tyson, my aching back and arms feel like I've been through boot camp.
So, a little word of advice from your dear friend Hethr: When in Mexico remember to use the bottled water for anything that will eventually go into your mouth.
Pray for me friends. I don't know if I'll survive another night like the last one.
