Thanks Pete. I agree, and was not planning on getting them until I got to South America.
No pain killers yet....Was thinking it might be good to have some along, even if they turn to dust! :)
Thanks for the input!

That being said, a broad spectrum antibiotic (like Doxy- but there may be a better one) is handy to take if you have no idea what is wrong with you and there are no doctors.
My Doc gave me some pain killers too. I have no idea what they were (and they turned to dust in my luggage) but if you end up too hurt to ride to a doctor, they might be handy.
