Arrived in Austin late Monday evening. Arrived in town with a friend too, in the form of a nasty sore throat that developed on the flight. Finding a local place in my insurance network where I could get a doctor to give me a prescription turned into a chore yesterday morning. Made me long for Kiev where I coul djust walk to the damn Apoteka myself and get whatever drugs I wanted. Feeling better this morning though. Blogging will continue to be light, as the lack of a high speed is a bit of a hinderance.
