Almost bit my tongue off!

BOLIVIA | Wednesday, 3 June 2009 | Views [1811]

I was in the middle of a trip to Bolivia when I got this massive headache and my body felt like it was freezing even though it was hot outside. I began to shiver uncontrollably, and my chattering teeth almost caused me to bite my tongue off. I went to the local hospital where they easily identified that I had Dengue Fever and a temperature of 40-41 Celsius.

How World Nomads Helped

WN paid for my hospital stay and on top of that they paid for my new flight home and bus tickets to get to the airport.

Paid $1859.04 ($859.04 for medical expenses and $1000 for flight and bus expenses)
