The worst guest ever

Recently, I had some good news from another Leiden student that spent some type here in Kalabahi. From what it sounds like,  he is similar to Matt.  No reaction to Lariam (evil malaria medication), no real problem with heat, etc. etc.  His wife, on the other hand, is much more similar to me.  She mandis (showers) six times a day, needs air conditioning, and even with numerous books to read, gets a little bored being inside for too long.  So, all things considered, I have decided that I am not the worst guest ever.  I do not even have air conditioning and can spend up to 5 hours reading in my room simply happy that there is a fan and no risk of mosquitoes.

Overall, this new discovery has greatly improved my mood here in Kalabahi.  I run the fan on high all day long and take 3 to 4 mandis a day with no worries and no guilt.

My next step just may be falling asleep without dreaming of air conditioning set to 68…
