Malaria Dreams

P1050568

One of the side effects of being a geologists is travel.  I am grateful for these traveling opportunities, and a bit nervous about leaving for Uganda today.  The most terrifying creature lives there….the mosquito.  I started my Malaria pills yesterday and started having nightmares last night.  The nightmares seem to get worse (more violent and graphic) with elevation (perhaps due to less oxygen).  As a scientists, I can’t help but wonder if there are good ways to prevent these nightmares and get a good night’s sleep above 14,000 feet.
