Toured Mercy-a lovely hospital especially as compared with the public one-it actually had mosquito nets over the patients' beds, unlike the public one where family must provide linens and food for patients. Has school of nursing attached. Got sick, maybe from swimming in black water creek yesterday? Good-rumors are if you drink from the Kumuni Creek, you will return to Guyana! The rest of group toured a girls orphanage and reported it was heart-rending. I {heart} Imodium! That and good old Coca Cola, bottled in Georgetown, got me through the day lying in my sultry room and throwing up in the sink because I couldn't make it down the hall to the toilets. I would HATE to have malaria here lying in the public hospital!
