Fever and chills, known locally as ague. We have more to fear than just malaria. Forgetting to wash your hands just once can cause you to spend two days in bed--all the time swearing that you will always wash your hands after this. If the vegetables are not washed properly, if the glass was not washed properly--you get sick. We teach sanitation and hygiene seminars to impress this on the villagers, but it seems I forgot. Happily, it usually goes away after a couple of days. Right now it's a fever of 103, so you see how important this blog is to me. Pray for us.
