Preparing....the painful part

Traveling to Mauritania takes a lot of preparation. Not only do you need to get a visa, but you have to get vaccincations. I had six:
  • Hepatitis A and B
  • Flu
  • Typhoid
  • Tetanus
  • Meningococcal
  • Yellow Fever

I didn't really feel any effects of these shots until the next day. And then I felt feverish and a little out of it. Unfortunately I was pretty busy and feeling the effects of the typhoid and Yellow Fever was a bit inconvenient.

Now I get to work on processing my visa. I'll keep you posted.
