Last night one mozzie, one single mozzie, managed to bite me the back of my neck, my bicep, my foot my shoulder blade and my butt. What kind of a mosquito bites someone on the butt? Surprisingly, I don’t find the number of bites the problem, but I am sure we all know by now that a Korean mozzie bite swells up like a spider attacked you and then the bite itches like nothing on earth.
Because of last night’s attack, Korean mosquitoes have been upgraded to #2 on my list of things I hate about Korea. At least mozzies are only a problem in the summer, but Koreans can’t walk straight no matter which of Korea’s four distinct seasons we happen to find ourselves in.
