Overheard: We don’t have malaria here…but if you do get it just take the pills!
Have yet to meet anybody who takes Malaria remotely seriously: natives, foreign workers, people who have never had it, people who have had it…they all treat it like a minor inconvenience. It is fascinating how many people have implied I’m a hypochondriac because i wanted a net..everyone says the same thing “We don’t have malaria here…but if you do get it just take the pills!”
