No, not the plotline from "Resident Evil 5", but a real story from the BBC...

Did you have any experiences with this "virus" Bill.

Great background for various effects. Thanks for the post.

No, I was not so lucky! I lived with them back in the 1960s and in Honduras, not Nicaragua, so my experiences might not be typical of what one might find there and now.

The name of the affliction is interesting. I am not sure what "grisi" means (greasy?). "Siknis" is obviously from "sickness." The Miskito have a lot of English and English-derived words in their language, due largely to pirates and others who hid in "La Mosquitia," called in English, the "Mosquito Coast." Somewhere I have a Miskito-English dictionary (a bit religiously skewed as it was compiled by missionaries), and I will try to find the meaning of "grisi."
