On arriving in Pursat, we were told the one guest house in town was full due to a contingent of researchers that had arrived to measure the amount of malaria around. I don't think the town had ever seen so many strangers on one day! Oh joy, I thought to myself - raging hordes of mosquitos, and I haven't brought with me any anti-malarials.  Layering up my full strength deet insect spray, we were spotted in a house, our 7 person research team distributed across 4 king sized beds with grubby sheets.However, dawn with it a revelation... each of mosquito nets turned such beautiful jewel like colours.
