A few Dutch when I was there. Tiresome, but really friendly. Like Ze Germens Laughing

We've just been told the Mosquitos are harbouring Dengy fever, not normally Mosquitos in Brazil but if u have any repellent make sure u pack it! Sorry, I know we said u didn't need any.

Not sure I'd worry too much about this as we never saw any mozzies?
Think it's just a paranoid friend of ours out there tbh

First night no mosquitos. First day no flies.

Last night I got bitten by mosquitos on my legs a couple of times. At breakfast there were swarms of flies. And definitely not because of me, I used the hose first and then took a precautionary wipe with paper to ensure I was clean and also to dry off.

I'd rather not get it but it sounds more fun than malaria IMHFO affraid

Mozzie repellent
Don't get it near any plastics as it will melt them

The rooms at Cumbuco Guesthouse have nets on the beds, so my guess is mosquitos aren't all that uncommon here. Plenty of places for them to breed with all the lagoons nearby.

We never had a problem last year, until we played with some local puppies and then it wasn't mozzies that bit us Rolling Eyes
Moral of the story don't play with the wild dogs, however cute they are ;-)

Thanks Marc and Sarah for yet another fantastic trip, very well organised as usual, it's always going to be a challenge with twelve of us. Reality has hit me again today and has left me sitting at my desk dreaming of my next adventure. See you all soon for some more kiting action cheers albeit a bit less warm, blue and sunny!
