Flesh eating wounds and movies

After over a week of infection, I had my first uneventful day of much needed idleness to allow my flesh-eating wound to aerate and begin healing now that I began an antibiotic treatment. I spent most of the time chatting with the Indonesian businessman, a boat maker, and getting tips for Indonesia, one of my next destinations. As the country lacks reliable internet, I browsed through and watched a couple of ripped movies. In the evening we all went out to dinner with the host and watched another movie in the theaters at Vision City Mega Mall.

Bacteria from coral and salt water sources are especially dangerous because our bodies are not accustomed to them. You should always wear foot protection while snorkeling or walking through beaches because a cut can lead to major infection.


    • Thank you. I’m fully recovered after getting antibiotics in a Papua New Guinean pharmacy. I noticed that my body was healing every day, but because I was on my feet walking all day, I was fighting against my body. I wanted to make sure to take advantage of the rare opportunity to visit these seldom visited countries first, then seek medical treatment in Cairns, Australia.
