Better than Excedrin

Excedrin is my go-to, over-the-counter remedy for headaches, especially when I think the headache is going to become a migraine. I felt it coming on as I left the Catalan Art Museum, but didn’t have excedrin and the ship was miles away.

I finally found a Farmacia, which is better stocked with expensive lotions than other stuff so I had to ask in my terrible Spanish for excedrin. I pointed to my head to help the sales girl understand that I needed something for a headache. She brough Tylenol. I asked if she had anything with caffeine in it. I’ve been off energy drinks for a week, so I was also suffering from caffeine withdrawal. She translated caffeine as codeine. I was able to get a product with codeine in it without a script. Maybe I do like Spain!
