Can’t believe I had a mozzie buzzing in my ear in the middle of the night last night – and we haven’t even left home yet. How can such a small thing cause such dread, when you have the bed covers flung off on a hot night, and you know that it’s going to bite you any second?
Of course, by the time I heard the irritating little buzz, I had already been bitten on my back and my hand. At least I knew where to find my insect repellent – right there at the top of my suitcase. It’s a strong one though – ready for the toughest Asian mosquitoes. One squirt and I reckon any bug in a two-mile radius must have been struggling to breathe. I know I was.
Ah well, it’s all training for the adventure, isn’t it? Just like today – going out in the midday sun with a temperature of 23 degrees. Although it doesn’t really compare… Bangkok currently has 35 degrees, with 63% humidity.
… and I thought I was the only little irritant in your bedroom…
