Day 2 (June 17, 2010)
I woke up today to the screeching of a rooster. It was, quite hilariously, exactly as it sounds in the movies (and no less irritating). At breakfast, Sabrina informed me that I was right to be skeptical of my malaria pills. She spoke to a dermatologist after she began taking it who told her that it’s really more of an antibacterial medication than something specifically intended for malaria treatment. She had, in fact, gotten malaria while in Mexico while taking these very pills. Brilliant.
