What costs $366 and makes you go OUCH!

Yellow Fever Infected Areas
These are areas where the virus is present in monkeys and is a potential risk to humans as defined by the World Health Organisation.

Some of these countries demand a yellow fever certificate from travellers as a condition of entry to their country. Many of these, and other countries, will ask you for a certificate if you are entering from an infected country.

That's right, we both got our precious Yellow Fever shots tonight! We also purchased some Odorless Controlled Release Insect Repellent,(made by Passport Health) I guess its the best you can purchase and does not have the chemicals that seep into your skin. Add to that list, Clothing Repellent:stays on the clothes even after many washes, and last by not least Oral Electrolyte "Berry Flavor" and a prescription from good old Best Friend Cipro, suppose to cure diarrhea in 3 pills or less, if it does not then you have other "issues" bugs ect.. (I told the lady just looking at the written prescription "I feel like getting diarrhea right now!) Poor husband, this will be one hell of a ride with me on this trip. However, I promise not to go looking for troubles, no street foods ect... even if they look and smell delicious!
