Mosquitoes. I swear, they are attracted to white people. It's been crazy. It doesn't help that we walk through basically swamps, though. We can’t help it - the whole Philippines is a swamp! Not really, but it is super humid, and wet, and wet, and wet. I slept without a sheet - big mistake. The mosquitoes attacked my feet. Thanks Mom for the anti itching cream. It was like I had found the holy grail when I came across it in my luggage. It saved my life – well, at least my feet’s life. I was about to cut them off. It was especially bad because every step would irritate some mosquito bite on my foot. Don't let me sound too down - it's just the worst mosquitoes ever!
