I've had encounters with mosquitos that would put these pictures to shame. I went to Mexico a few decades ago during the rainy season. Also, I was drinking the whole time I was there, so I probably oozed what makes one so attractive to bugs. Anyway, I'm not sure if these were sand flies or mosquitos or something else, but within a few days I was covered in bites, especially on the feet and lower legs. I was so toxic that I broke out in hives. And the itching...was insane. I couldn't scratch all of the areas that itched fast enough because when I started scratching one bite, another three would be screaming to be scratched. By the time I left my legs were a disaster. I'm surprised I didn't get a serious infection.
