I'll be heading to Kenya this 'winter', well European winter that is. Flying there on the 12th of the 12th.
Will be doing a 10dayVipassana meditation course there first, and visit Mfangano island.
There is a farmer called Joshua there, who let's me eat all the mangoes on his land since he isn't able to export them... There was another post on this from Wild Light here: http://www.30bananasaday.com/forum/topics/free-fruit-holiday?xg_sou...
Funny enough, I didn't get in touch with Joshua through this website but he happened to find out that I was visiting Kenya and invited me to stay on his land. This all happened because we had similar friends on facebook...Small world, the fruitarian world. Anyway, I will also visit a Fruitarian community that is living on the same island, to see how they are doing. They have a site on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Fruitarian-Paradise-in-Africa/1409358...
Don't know what to do considering Malaria, should I take any pills that I can take after it may have occurred? Talked to a friend that lived in Papua New Guinea and she told me ''oh yeah I had malaria once... Wasn't a big deal, still have it in my blood, am not allowed to donate my blood but that's all...'' Really? Does anyone here have any experience with malaria and/or yellow fever? Should I vaccinate? Well I don't want to, it doesn't make any sense to, but maybe there are some reasons to consider it? Other things to consider or any other tips on travelling to Kenya/Africa?
Any help would be great.
Wishing you all a great day filled with tasty seasonal fruit!
I hear of horrible stories on running forums of people getting vaccinated before travel and still getting sick + reactions of weight gain from the vaccination allergy.
Ive a few fruity vegan friends that have travelled to Kenya with NO vaccines and NO problems at all.
I NEVER get vaccines. I focus on hydration, early nights, sufficient cals, smart training etc. I get bitten at least 350 days of the year too by malaria, ross river, dengue fever carrying mosquitos.
