Brent started getting symptoms last night. I don’t think we’ll bother testing him yet. We’ll just assume and isolate. So far both of us have mild symptoms - it just feels like a cold. The current requirements in Germany are to isolate for five days from onset of symptoms. Since I didn’t know I had it for 2.5 days (d’oh!) that means I have to isolate through Sunday. Since Brent started getting definite symptoms at end of day on Saturday, we’ll assume that we need to continue isolating through Thursday and we’ll hopefully be clear by Friday, September 2nd.

I have talked to the Laggais, and it sounds like none of them have it, which is good. It also supports my theory that we were exposed on the train(s) to Marburg on Monday. A pox on those asshats who were coughing and sneezing on the train without masks on.

Guido has offered his place to isolate, and Ira has offered help if we need it. Hopefully we won’t need anything, but it is so nice that they’ve offered, and we have folks to call if things get more serious.
I woke up before 6:00 this morning feeling pretty good (relatively speaking). I suggested to Brent that we go for a walk around town while everyone else is still sleeping so that we can at least see some of this beautiful place while we’re here. For all the times I’ve wished that the throngs of tourists would get out of the way of my photos… well, it would seem that they actually add to the appeal. The empty city was a little lonely and stark. We saw lots of beautiful places, but I think my favorite was a little street called Auf dem Meere. We were back to our AirBnB before 8am to do some resting and isolating.
We had a reservation to stay at a hostel in Lübeck on the 31st. I have canceled that and we will go straight from here to a campground near Stralsund to continue our isolation.
This is our second major illness while traveling. The first time was when Brent got the *Budapest Sewer Belly in Croatia. That time we spent several days laid up in Ogulin watching the **Kuna Bin in our AirBnB. Today we’re kinda missing the Kuna Bin.

* Not a real thing, and therefore, not really what he had

** Not a real thing. We made up the term to describe the English movies shown on Croatian tv. They’re the worst of the worst. Even worse than what you would find in the $1 bin in a Blockbuster Video. We wouldn’t even pay a dollar to watch those movies. Since a Kuna was worth about 1/5 of a dollar, we decided that Croatia must be buying their movies from the ‘Kuna Bin’
