Woke up yesterday morning with what distinctly felt like a mosquito bite on my right hand. And I just thought what an idiot I was! Yes, okay I had gone out and bought the spray to protect me outside when I do my river walks, but I hadn’t taken into consideration the most relevant issue… which is that I don’t ever remember being bitten by a mosquito in Sevilla when I’ve been outside.

What I DO remember are those long hot summer nights when I wake up in the wee hours to THAT SOUND and then later on end up with nasty itchy bite mounds all over my hands, specifically on the knuckles. Well, I hope it’s not too late but, as well as the spray-on DEET, I now have those plug-in mosquito things that are supposed to be “safe for children and pets”.
