It turns out mosquitos like Norwegian-Americans.
I know this because I currently look like I have the chicken pox.
None of my companions in French Guiana had more than two bites, whereas I had two nearly every square inch.
Resulting in: me smelling constantly of lavender essential oil (lovely) and me having to exercise every ounce of restraint to not scratch off all of my skin (not so lovely.) I think I now know how smokers feel when they quit smoking… they probably desire a cigarette as much as I felt compelled to constantly claw at my skin.
Aside from the sheer agony of bodily itch-ation, I had a wonderful time in French Guiana (where I spent the holidays with my belle-famille). Eating mangoes, papayas, passion fruit, and homemade Indian roti by my talented mother-in-law, plus enjoying holiday gaiety and jungle galavanting
So here’s a little peek into the French Guyanese rainforest and the things that are currently tickling my fancy.
(Thankfully I recorded the audio of this video on my phone and then synced audio/video. You should hear the camera audio… it sounds like the monsoon that it was.)
Hope you enjoyed my December Favorites, and that you had a marvelous holiday season.
Here’s to dream-catching in 2017.
