1st October was Nigeria's 50th Independance anniversary
2nd October was Gandhiji's 142nd Birth Anniversary
3-4th October: I was bitten by a mosquito, I think in Burkina (but I cannot be sure of this), subsequently travelled to Niamey in Niger and felt not so good , saw a doctor on the 6th of October and was diagnosed with the Paludisme ( Pa- Lew-Ee) as it is known here and flew back home immediately for 3 days R&R.
I stand much improved healthwise as i type this post another doctors visit is in the offing tomorrow.
Headed off with Manali now to the Garba Fest organised by the local Indian Association.
Adieu. A demain !
