Yesterday I got the necessary vaccinations for my trip. Hep A booster, Tetanus booster, Polio booster, then Yellow Fever, Typhoid, and malarial pills, oh my! I must have been allergic to one of the vaccines because four hours later I was sitting on my couch watching the Clippers game wondering if I needed to go to the emergency room. Instead I popped my leg with an expired EpiPen and tried not to worry that the constricting pain in my chest foreshadowed gloomy prospects for my time abroad. If I can't even handle the vaccines...

But I am strong of heart and spirit, and I will persevere. Three cheers for Simon Bolivar! Es caliente!!
