Although toilet trips were still a pretty unpleasant experience, I felt as though I was getting a little better and had started to feel slightly more hungry again. I was at least coherent enough to realise that I had three immediate problems.
1. Shitting through the eye of a needle is not terrific, and I needed medicine.
2. I am running low on Pesos and need to visit an ATM machine.
3. I have only been given a 30 day visa for Colombia, making it tricky to cycle even if I am not ill.
I solved the first two problems early on, and only time will tell if I solved the third one !I will split my following days up into more manageable sections as I approach the Andes, and hopefully as I am getting better, the next day off will be in a weeks time in Medellin.
