Halfway through my trip to France I got a sore throat, which turned into an ear infection. By Sunday night I had blood and puss dripping out of my ear (gross, I know). I am going through some pictures from the trip and I found this little gem.
I think I just discovered how the germs got in.
Traveler’s Tip: don’t drink out of questionable looking fountains no matter how thirsty you are. That is, unless you like blood and puss dripping from your ear.
