Getting very excited about the upcoming trip to Ecuador. We leave in 6 days, yesterday Karen and I went to the travel clinic for some inoculations. Let me make a suggestion, have the shots done in your non dominant arm. Though manageable, the stiffness and soreness at the injection site makes ever movement of the arm for the next 20 hours or so rather unpleasant. Also plan ahead a bit better then we did so you can take care of your shots earlier. A month a head would be a good guideline I would think. I am sure I would have forgotten about shots all together if I hadn’t been reading “Living and Retiring in Cuenca: 101 Question Answered” by Connie Pombo. Great book for a wide variety of questions you may have about going to Cuenca, Ecuador.
