The odd thing about the Pom Pom infections is that they just don't go away. Even a week after leaving Pom Pom a simple …
... an angry monitor lizard rushing across our path. However, for the most part, the day and a half of trekking came and went without any injury, except for our bodies being covered with many mosquito bites and/or bedbug bites (we're still undecided on which they are).
