I got one last little Christmas present from Kenya a few days after we returned to Cairo.
So today I shall discuss this disease.
The name itself seems to suggest something exotic and exciting. I was expecting to turn green, sprout radishes out my head, or start burping slugs. However, Malaria is not as interesting as it sounds. It’s just fever topped with diarrhea and vomiting with a side of cold sweats or brain-blending headaches.
Providentially, we were given Malaria medicine before we left Kenya, so I’m on the mend now. Not as exciting as you expected huh? I’m not too upset about the anti-climax though. I still get to show off to my fellow students come February!
