Yellow Fever?

12 June 2009
Who hasn't heard of cabin fever? Today that's what we are suffering from. It's raining cats and dogs since early last night and the wind is steady in the 30-40 knots range with a few gusts to 50-ish during the early part of last night.

The rain will end tonight but the wind with stay around 30 knots at least 30 hours more.

Luckily there is a remedy for cabin fever. A decent dinner, a glass of wine and a movie on the computer will help us endure this evening.

I am not sure as to if there's a remedy for yellow fever, but those nasty little virus you can see on today's picture has invaded my body in small numbers, provided with the vaccination I got yesterday. They are not alone either, the are in a happy little crowd with diphteria, tetanus and hepatitis A and B.

No wonder I feel like struck by the flu and not too sharp today.

As an interesting aside, the Doctor who gave me those shots will move to Dakar, Senegal in August to work over there during 2 years, and gave us an invitation to visit them if/when we get there in the fall.

Sure seems like a nice spot to spend the upcoming winter...
