Who said a trip with Engineers Without Borders was supposed to be like spending Spring Break at the beach? This from the Kansas City Star:

Bugs crawled in the straw mat all night, every night, nibbling on exposed parts of Allison Poulignot’s body. The 19-year-old University of Missouri-Rolla engineering student tossed and turned one evening, then curled into a ball from the pain in her stomach. As chills coursed through her, Poulignot shivered violently despite the tropical heat that lay over the Bolivian village she visited last summer.

It gets better. Read the whole story from the Star’s Christmas edition.
