India, I Love You but You’re Bringing Me Down August 25, 2009

Posted by KG in India, Travels.

Crossing fingers: parasite count is now low-to-none.  I gave the doctor another liter of blood today, and they’re running it through whatever graviton, microscope, macroscope, or other bizarre instrument to determine how many bugs are left in my system.  Malaria sucks, and the treatment sucks almost as much.  And I was sick so long that now feeling well feels… weird.  Like I’m not supposed to be healthy. 

That is soon to be fixed.  The wife and I are hurtling towards vacation at full throttle.  I started packing Monday night for a flight Thursday evening.  Three days early?  Previously unheard of.  The timing is bad (what with the whole bidding thing) but we’re nonplussed.  I’ve spent — brace yourself — 447 of the last 451 days of my life in India.  The fact that I’m counting is pretty indicative of how I’ve been feeling.   This is a great place to visit, and not a bad place to live.  But I’m western and spoiled, and I need some time away.
