Creature Comforts... Days 81-82

So, being in a civilized country, I expect to be able to find Neosporin + pain relief. I went to the chemist (read: pharmacy) and could not find it anywhere, nor could I find anything even slightly reminiscent. I ended up getting some sort of iodine based substance, since it turns my skin and subsequently, everything I touch, a putrid shade of orange-brown. Anyway, I had to find this stuff because the exploding eczema on my hand got infected. It's really quite disgusting. But yeah, this stuff is actually working, so my finger will not end up falling off.

Something really crazy happened this weekend. Apparently a party got out of control somewhere around here and a guy drove, on purpose, into a crowd at a party. I think two high school students ended up getting killed, someone in my classes knew one of them. There seems to be a lot more violence in the news lately around here.

On a much lighter note, I absolutely love the signs for trains here. They look like toy trains. It might as well just say "Choo-choo!" on the sign. Oh oh oh and one more thing, we drove on the craziest bridge on Sunday. First off, it was one lane. Second off, it is also a multipurpose bridge, trains use it too. You have to look first to see if any trains are coming before you can use the bridge. Talk about nerve wracking.

And how are you gonna get one of those signs out of the country? It is a country, right...
It has a prob about being a continent/not a continent...but the fact that it's a country is not in question, right...

Maybe you could mail the sign to me. You will need a 1/2 wrench and some channel locks. And DON'T get caught.

Lurve.

Maybe they should have signs with cartoon ladies tied to the tracks, with Snidely Whiplash (laughing snidely...) standing there, with his hands on the handle of a detonator attached to bundles of dynamite under the lady's head...

...To WARN people that there's gonna be a train sign soon.

Lurve.
