In village I passed out from heat stroke so I ate an orange for a boost of Vit C. Lucky for me I ate half of it before realizing it was filled with maggots. Now I didn't only feel like I was going to die, I felt like I was going to die shitting my pants.

Went with previous volunteer from Armenia to the PCMO because he thought he had gonorrhea. I figured I should get checked while there. He just needed to bathe more. I tested positive for chlamydia. Thanks Bangkok.
