Into the inferno
On a beach holiday, I walked into a metal stand surrounding a tree in the street and broke my big toenail. I had to bandage my toe up, which meant I couldn’t fit into my narrow sandals.- From the curiously named “Travel and Adventure” section of the Malaysia Star.
A day or so later I got bitten by mosquitoes and my leg went all red, with a big lump on it. I had two smaller bites on my wrist which didn’t seem too bad.
Two days before I came home, I woke up with various small spots all over my body.
I found out that I had an allergic reaction to the bites.
