Unexpected Guest

Been feeling a bit under the weather since I got back from the U.S.  I had some mild stomach cramps that kept getting worse each time I would eat or drink anything.  But the pain was mild and intermittent, so I figured it'd go away.  Yesterday, it was a bit worse, so I finally went and saw the nurse who took me to a local doctor.

Turns out I have a parasite.  If you want to gross yourself out, you can google search for images of parasites.  He put me on some medication, which should clear everything up in 3 days or so.  One of the many perks of living in a third world country.
