Sickness sets in

By Michael Kurtz | 1 Comment » July 18th, 2008

AHMEDABAD, India – After an all-night bus trip north from Mumbai to Ahmedabad, our friend Leila’s adopted Indian home, we were all feeling a bit under the weather. Thushan, however, was hit worst of all, with a fever, body aches, and general exhaustion, all early warning signs of one of the region’s biggest killers… malaria. See it all in today’s photo gallery.
