The small pleasures of the Melanesian forest
All entertainment aside, it is worthwhile advising, for those colleagues and friends who work in North and Central Vanuatu, that I once again came down with malaria, for which radical treatment was necessary (mefloquine+primaquine). As of now I am having a blood smear analysed at an advanced immunology facility because it appears that I may have contracted a doxycicline-resistant strain. If this were the case, it will be important to put the word out through the Vanuatu Ministry of Health. But hopefully it will not be. I will be posting an update soon.
