A decent size of my backpack is now going to be taken up with malaria medication, after the doctor presribed me 400 Doxycycline pills – to be taken a week before I go away, all the way through Asia, for the first month in Australia, all the way through South America, and for a month after I leave South America. Better than catching malaria I suppose. I couldn’t help but laugh at the box – it said to avoid direct sunlight when on the pills. That’d be great – I can say I went round the world but was under a very big hat the whole way. At least I’m not on Larium, which has always sounded like scary stuff. You have to start taking that before any other medication so you have long enough to find out if it’s driving you potty.
