Hot water, brandy, honey, lemon.

I can barely whisper today. I called off work and went to the doctor, for the first time in Spain. I was apprehensive – after the gigantic runaround I have experienced with other seemingly simple processes here – but as it turned out, the difficulties of a doctor’s appointment in a new country were completely eclipsed by the difficulties of navigating a doctor’s appointment with absolutely no voice.

On the bright side, maybe without my American accent, people will think I’m Spanish…

It turns out I have some kind of infection – sinuses? (Again, communication was a little difficult.) I got antibiotics and lots of “pobrecita” sympathy from anyone I tried to communicate with – croaking and gesticulating.

The above treatment has also been employed.
