After a few problems and lack of direction from the Insurance Company (UK Insurance through Nationwide Building Society) I was given notification of flights home. I flew to Sao Paulo stayed in the Caesar Hotel for a night and flew home with British Airways. The eventual choice of hotel and airline the insurance company did get right!
I was sorting out my washing when I found the prime suspect squished on the inside of my cargo trousers. The spider has been preserved in a solution of alcohol courtesy of the hospital.
I guess I can consider this a moral victory as the spider did not live to bite another day. Perhaps I was too poisonous for it! All I need to do now is develop my new superpowers in particular better sight and hearing for locating rarities! I’m not sure how I’m going to use the stringy stuff that comes out from my wrists!
But all joking apart I am on the mend there is still a way to go but a full recovery is on the cards!
