Came to bogota, and unlike the few weeks before in NYC, I’ve had no gnats picking at me

Let me just state outright, I am a bug, mosquito, insect magnet. I like to joke that it is my very sweet blood that attracts them. I do believe that to be true, in part.

The last few weeks in NYC I was hiving everyday from one thing or another. I had rashes up and down my arms and legs; and even my face. I break out in hives, if bitten or if the tenperature changes to drastically either way. It could also be flare ups from stress. Either way, the last few weeks have been tough.

Now, here in Colombia I have not had a single rash or hive outbreak. Let me knock on wood. Yes, I’m superstitious. I’ve been out hiking near lakes and nature reserves and, yet, not a single bite. The air is so much fresher here. And, we’re at way higher altitudes. There can be many reasons why. Or it could just be that there is something in NYC to which I am exposed and allergic to. I’m going miss not having to worry about nit-picking gnats.
