Medical problems :

 

8 days before I arrived in Cape Town a slight pain started in the right shoulder. After being here it became worse and worse… since I’m here i was visiting the Chiropractor 5 times and still suffer under extrem pains. After doing a X-ray today I wait for final diagnosis - but for sure a nerv is blocked. The reason for all this was a wrong sleeping position during the trip (Chiro guy is somehow a sailor too). See attached pic to learn how a correct sleeping position looks. Further plans will be published soon ! 

 

Enjoy your weekend ! Cape Town February 3’th 2017 - 17.24 UTC
