I've almost been in Takeo a week now and I must confess that I've been sick basically the whole time. My days have been spent rolling around in bed feeling terribly sorry for myself. I've had a variety of awful and exaggerated flu-like symptoms. I went to a doctor ($228) in Phnom Penh and was tested for Malaria and Dengue and thankfully came back negative for both. I'm almost on the mend, but last night I had one of those coughs where you wake yourself up mid coughing fit, on the verge of death.

I've been quite upset as I was supposed to be teaching English classes this week and next. These photos of the kids playing and enjoying the rain are a nice reminder to look on the bright side of things. At least I'm sick in the place that most feels like home here in Asia. I can afford medical care. I'll be better soon. I'll be in Europe soon.
