Quick blog – next one I will actually talk about what I am doing and where I am living. What really is on my mind is bugs !! So the first night I am here I keep hearing this sound in my room – I am not sure what it is however every time I put the light on the noise stops. I thought I was hearing things – power goes out at 3 a.m. and the sound is a little louder – nothing I can do. Well the next day I am thinking I need to cool off so I will take a shower – not like a shower at home but it is cold water that kind of sort of comes out of the shower head. I look down and staring back at me is a cockroach – if you would have asked me at the time I would have said it was a least a foot long – actually the body was only about 2 inches. So I grabbed this little thing of soap and poured in on the little sucker. I didn’t what else to do – anyway I can say it had a clean death if nothing else. My concern is not that cockroach but I always thought they have a lot of friends – a very social creature as I recall. Well last night the noise was back – I wonder where his friends are ???
My next bug issue is ants – thousands upon thousands of little itty bitty ants. They crawl on you – I am always shaking my legs. It is not too bad if you don’t have food. They appear to be able to smell food that is sealed up as I learnt. I had an Aktins bar in my carryon which I had forgotten about. Well I see this little trail of ants going into my clothes – I didn’t freak out or anything – yes I did as I start shaking everything. Then I realized where they were going – right for the bar. It was not a pretty sight – bar and ants left my room through the window – everything is good now.
My only other concern and it has nothing to do about bugs – but my luggage has not arrived as we need to go to Port au Prince to pick it up. So the only thing I have as far as deodorant goes is perfume I bought at the duty free story - Acqua di Gioia – great smell however it doesn’t work so well as a deodorant – helpful travel tip. Any way I will get it tomorrow so hopefully things will improve !!
Until next time.
