Invasion of the Bloodsuckers
The outdoors has been hazardous, the last few days. After the thunderstorms during the past week, the moist environment and warm temperatures have proved to be a mosquitos heaven. Apparently in Montevideo they will be spraying parks over this weekend to mitigate the invasion.
Here, on the coast, it is as bad as I have ever seen it. We are like the old west wagon trains. We are huddled in the house, while outside, "they" circle, waiting for an invitation to come in. Fortunately we have nice, secure screens on all of our windows and sufficient air circulation that allows us to be comfortable, while we are virtually barricaded inside the house. We are even keeping the pets inside, as much as possible.
What I would give for a 10' high, giant can of RAID (they sell RAID here, just in the smaller cans, by the way).
