2 9 11 I am prone to bug bites. The senor and I often laugh how mosquitos prefer my soft white meat to his greasy, hard dark meat. Well, today it sort of stopped being a laughing matter. Something has been chewing on me for days, on my feet and lower legs and by last night my sandal straps and pant legs touching the bites were intense burning itching pain. I decided I go to the pharmacy in the morning, because neither vinegar, alcohol or other creams were providing any relief. Well by morning I decided to go straight to the doctor and get this taken care of right. I told him something was chewing on me and showed him my 26 bites and he agreed something was and still is chewing on me. It is a skin parasite akin to scabies or chiggers that I probable picked up from the sand somewhere. He gave me a prescription for 4 pills that I took today to kill them and some cream for the itching. Cream provides some relieve, but they still itch horribly. We stayed pretty close to home today as all my sandals rub the bites and make it worse.
We went out for fish and chips, Canadian style at lunch. Zorro’s bar next door to us is owned by a Canadian and he was able to get the shop across the walkway from his bar and does fish and chips there and sends drinks over from the bar. Fish was excellent, but evidently with the humidity here gets into the potatoes and they don’t fry up crisp, they are a little rubbery. He is contemplating going to frozen fries. We wish him well and assume his new enterprise will do quite well.
We wanted to go to the movies tonight, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I had read the book ( and the 2 sequels) but we found out the movies is in Swedish and dubbed in spanish. Boy did that leave us out. Anyway tomorrow is another day and we plan to go to Las Gatas beach for some snorkeling, lunch and a margarita or 2. Signing off KO
