Easter on Espiritu Santo Island

26 Apr

21-26 April 2011

You’d think that mosquitoes on an island named Espiritu Santo in a country often compared to paradise would be nice… but they are horrible! And their bites itch for days and days. All the bugs are mean: I was barely out of the airport when a cockroach landed on my arm and stung me (family member of the ones I have been exterminating at home?). Welcome to Luganville! I had bites I couldn’t even identify… and yes, I forgot to bring my insect repellent. Argh! I was applying anti-itch cream the same way as sunscreen!
Fascinating, no? Want more…
