all i’m saying, is that the next day i was in hospital.
although that would be a disservice to one drink for a cheap joke: as far as i can tell it was the hotel breakfast that sent me retching. its one-way to get out of a four hour presentation you’re helping give, but not one i’d recommend. many thanks go to the staff at our hosts itaú cultural, and to the hospital staff for not quarantining me with swine flu - the fever passed, i was stocked back up with liquid (needles!), and the next day was ready to perform.
