What I learned today

The lecture was on staying well while traveling in third world countries, and what to do if one does get sick while traveling. There was discussion on malaria prophylaxis and avoiding mosquitoes, travelers diarrhea avoidance and treatment, HIV and other blood borne pathogens, immunizations one should get before travelling, and the meds and equipment one should bring along. After an hour long lecture,complete with slides of the terrible illnesses that may befall one while overseas, the speaker summed it up with one slide that said this:

Don’t get bit

Don’t eat s**t

Don’t do it

Bring your kit

Avoiding these fellows was in a different lecture…
