19. It's no vacation
You really have to want to do it, because once you get there, you have
to adapt to life in a 3rd world country, where things like running water
and electricity, as well as medical care, are luxuries that are either
in rationed short supply, or non-existent. Different rules apply to life
down there, and you had better be very flexible (as well as healthy!) if
you are even going to contemplate it.
