I went and talked to a travel consultant/doctor on friday at the UW.  Received a typhoid, Hep A and Flu Vaccine.  Also received some malaria pills, diarrhea pills, and sleeping pills for the flight.

I originally was pretty determined to not take any malaria pills (they have side affects), but after consultation and looking at that map above, I think I'm going to.  One shitty thing about them is they cost $7 per pill.  Which I guess is cheaper than getting the disease. 

One other sad thing I learned is that its a good idea to stay away from monkeys.  Some can be aggressive and they could have rabies.  So if a monkey comes near us, I'm going to have Charlie protect me (after I take a photo of it).


  1. Do you have to take a pill every day? How does it work?

  2. yeah...start one day before going to the malaria zone, then take one per day until you've left the area for seven days.

  3. I did that, but stopped a week later.

  4. Oh my God. Nick, for the love of God, don't let Mom see this blog!!!
