My dad told this story when I grew up. During his time in Ivory Coast whenever he got sick he used to go to this local food place to order a pint of beer and the spiciest dish. The next day he would be better!
Which, I now know, is slightly romanticized dad! I find myself in the same situation out here and I’m still ill..
Maybe I didn’t drink enough of the beer part 😉
Update next day: Alright, it only took one day longer, feel much better now! Probably because I’m almost 30 now..!? Turning 29 over weekend
