      • Am I? Maybe you’re right, I just remembered a stay in Selva Lacandona, and another in the Amazon, at Leticia, on the Colombia, Brazil, Peru border. Both fab trips, but yes, mosquitoes can be bad. take vitamin B 20 days before. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I’m just teasing you.!! Mosquitoes are horrible. And funny enough, they pay me no attention in the States. But in Mexico, I am like a rare and tasty dish to them.!! I once received more than 20 mosquitoe bites waiting to pick up a friend at the Cancun airport (which is surrounded by la selva).!! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • That is funny. There are two types of skin. One, my father, my sister, one of my daughters who catch any mosquito a mile around. The other, my mother, myself, who never get a mosquito bite. But it is deceiving: we do get bitten (I’ve had malaria several times in Africa) but we don’t feel the bites. Don’t swell or get red. Which is an advantage but doesn’t save you from malaria.
