Yesterday, lacking onion, I lanced the lesions and put tequila on them as a disinfectant; then later I found a clove of garlic someone had left behind, and put slices of that on the wounds. It seems to have similar properties as onion, with the horrific exception that once you remove it, the infection comes back worse than before. The sore on my right wrist, which had almost healed, is back in full force. Last night I had 3 burning infections; it's a wonder I got any sleep at all.

Co-hosteler Joaquin offered me some cacao beans he had bought; the toasted one was nice, but the raw beans taste great, very much like unsweetened baker's chocolate but nutlike as well.
