Mosquitos Bite!


We arrived Saturday in Wadi El Naturn only to discover that it is a desert oasis. Sounds nice, no? Think of it this way: Hot weather + Lakes in the middle of the desert = Mosquito breeding ground! The first night I counted 77 mosquito bites in total. Here’s a little breakdown:

Face: 10
Right Arm: 36
Left Arm: 10
Body: 5
Right Leg: 5
Left Leg: 11
Needless to say, we fumigated our bedroom nightly and coated ourselves with bug spray after that night.
