Something bit my eye during the madrugada (early morning hours after midnight) on Monday. I should it to Mari in the posada. She said she recognized the mark, but I could not understand what she was saying bit me. The spot was irritating enough to send me to the pharmacy where they gave me a sort of a lotion. I didn’t think much more of it, but then Friday morning, it returned and made me look as if I had been punched in the face or had eye shadow on only one eye. I am used to being attacked by mosquitoes, even mala mujer (the plant), but this has it all: pain, itching, and overall irritation.
