That bug that was trying to get me must be gone by now... 48 hours or more and still no symptoms other than some phlegm in my throat. I got off easy again, thank my leukocytes.

There's a relatively new carniceria in Palomas, right next door to the Gamez chicken place. Got some pulpa there today, that I thought was stew beef (and declared such at the border, even though the meat looked suspiciously pink), but when I got home and cooked it, it turned out to be pork after all. Next time I have to specify pulpa de res. Supposedly the meat all comes from local farmers and is not factory farmed. In any case it tasted fine, not having the nasty detergent-perfume smell of meats from the grocery stores near the border.
