La gola - throat
After getting rained on in rather spectacular style in Venice last Saturday it was inevitable that the lurgy would catch up with me. The worst thing about the raffredore I've had this week was the mal di gola - sore throat. My voice also dropped around three octaves below normal too, which has made things fun. I'm hoping a weekend of rest will chase it away!
Protip for the Brits: if you ever have a mal di gola in Italy and you don't have any throat lozenges, Benagol are Strepsils with an Italian name (and at least twice the price).
