HEY SO, I'm headed to Africa in a few months, and a big thing I'm running into currently is HEALTH STUFF. Fellow travelers, I'd start by checking the CDC website. If you can find a travel clinic, even better! BUT YOU NEED TO BUDGET FOR IT - most people don't think about that when planning their 2nd or 3rd world trip, which is why I'm mentioning it. I'm looking at almost $400 for consult/vaccinations (about $90 each)/preemptive prescriptions/etc, and most travel clinics don't take insurance.

Approximately 1,200 miles off the southeast coast of Africa lies an island nation known as Mauritius that gives off the illusion of an underwater waterfall at the southwestern tip of the island. The visually deceiving impression, created in the water due to the runoff of sand and silt deposits, is especially effective and breathtaking in aerial shots. In fact, the illusion can even be seen on Google Maps.
