Just back from New York, Toronto & Creemore
I'll post some pics soon, but I am still recovering from time-zone lag - it's dreaful this way - and I am frantically cleaning my house. Whenever I return from a trip abroad, the first thing I notice is how manky the place looks and I start scrubbing everything in sight. I am also recovering from massive mosquito attacks suffered in the Ontario backwoods. My God, the Lough Derg midges have nothing on those Canadian carnivores! Despite the citronella, I was eaten alive! I am still scratching like mad. The cortizone cream my chemist recommended is utterly useless, so next I try camomille lotion and a homeopathic remedy called Ledum.
