The Problem with Sand Flies
During our entire village stay the kids struggled with sand fly bites. Tia's legs got the worst of it, and with the hot, tropical climate every bite turned into an infection, so we spent lots of time washing and soaking her legs. Keeping the flies away from the infected spots also was a challenge, so we cut off long socks and pulled them over the bites. As soon as we got up into the Highlands, the infection cleared up, but she still has the scars.
