After arriving in Lusaka, and then traveling to Livingstone, I was struck by a powerful cold. So powerful that it laid me low for five days… and then has had a recuperation period going on four+ days. The combination of exhaustion and a slight fever got both my and Dustin’s concerns going — could it be malaria? (And wouldn’t that be ironic?) Having had malaria once before, I was not interested in having it again… But after consulting multiple websites, contacts in the malaria community, and a medical doctor, it seems that I have a common cold that has just hit me hard. What a way to spend my last week in Lusaka!
