I felt absolutely lousy yesterday and am still not much better today. My right ear is now infected and hurts and I can’t hear with it. On days like this I feel that Neal Stephenson’s description in Cryptonomicon is quite applicable.
“It would be an idyllic tropical paradise if not for the malaria, the insects, the constant diarrheal and resulting haemorrhoids and the fact that the people are dirty and smell bad and eat each other and use human heads for decoration.”
On other days I quite enjoy it out here.
