Jungle Disease 1 Sierra 0

I am feeling like utter crap today and was going to confine myself to my room, but it is far too hot...so I ventured to the air conditioned internet. I think that I have gotten some sort of horrible parasite, and sadly it is completely my own fault. Yesterday we went out for dinner with the Aussies and Jenny, and then headed to a nice cafe for my first real coffee since I arrived. Forgetting that caffeine and Sierra is a bad combination...and not realizing that Sierra, Malcolm and Coffee is an even worse combination, we finished our beverages and headed back to campus. It was raining really really hard when we arrived (by this I mean that you must imagine two of the hardest rainfalls you have ever been in and then combine them) so we decided that it would be a really intelligent idea to go puddle jumping. Then in a moment of genius Erika, Malcolm and I decided that an even better idea would be to try to sled down the hills on cardboards. Sadly cardboard disintegrates very quickly in the rain, so we resorted to garbage bin tops (the plastic kind). This prooved to be only slightly more effective, but after a while we realized that running really fast than sliding on our asses worked quite well. Mind you we were doing all this in front of all the residences as people stared at us and thought that all Westerners must be psychotic. After over an hour of such craziness I retired to the shower and then to bed. I woke up this morning seriously ill, not wanting to move for the next millenia. At first I thought....hmmm maybe it is the highly unsanitized water we were jumping in, or perhaps the cold rain, or better yet a combination of the two in addition to sketchy food. Whatever it is if you don't hear from me for a while, I'm probably slowly rotting in my room, or dead in some Suva hospital. BLAH

Well good luck with that disease! Hopefully it's not Ebola, otherwise Tom will freak out!
