Original Subject: mosquito bites
do long term residents here get fewer mosquito bites as time goes on? meaning that scientifically, will a body ever develop any sort of immunity to the bites or just not be bothered by the itchiness anymore? i know that mosquitos are a fact of life here, but damn they’re annoying. on my last trip here, i left with 8-10 assorted bites on my arms and legs. it’s not so bad now, but i’m hoping that i won’t always have these stupid mosquito bites to worry about. my relatives seem to think i attract the mosquitos because i’m “fresh meat”, if you will. if that’s the case, i’m hoping that as times goes on i won’t look so attractive to those little buggers anymore.
