OMG.... no kidding. The mosquitoes in China are vicious. This is a warning and a strongly recommended advise to be taken to all of you who are planning to come to China during the summer and who might be a bit sensitive to mosquito bites.. Bring remedies! Bring repellent lotions. Bring creams to apply when you've been bitten. Because aooooooooch... this babies itches. And one little bite makes the whole area around the bite go all red/white and swell into a bump. And this swelling/itching doesn't go away within a few days. No, I am talking one week of sleepless nights of itching, not to mention ugly marks on your arms, legs and feet. It's only the beginning of summer and I already look like spotty.
Apparently I have the yummiest blood amongst my friends because it is always me being bitten, even though I apply copious amounts of insect repellents before leaving my flat.
My Chinese friends says this has to do with blood types. I don't have a clue what blood type I am (do u?) but obviously the great tasting kind. So people. Prepare. China's mosquitos are in action from dusk til dawn. Just wanted to warn you.
Ps. a less angry and more normal post is to come this arvo. Stay tuned!
