Tse Tse flies (0220)

The area is infested with Tse Tse fly. They transmit the deadly (but curable) sleeping sickness. As soon as you stop you have them in the car - and one of this sucker did bite me and lunched on my blood. I killed it and believe me there was a lot of blood. Their blood capacity compare to a moskito like a Magnum Bottle to an Espresso cup.... and it was my last fresh shirt.
I made a quick call to Medi24 to ask for early symptoms and the incubation time for the sleeping sickness. Great service, thanks alot. It is a day since and neither do I have fever nor am I in coma. So everything is fine.
