Carmine quotes No. 7 : On unseasonally warm weather

Thirty-six degrees at midday in the sun (today you can do the maths). No Mathilda today either.

Signora Anna on the weather :
"This weather's good only for bugs."
The overworked doctor's receptionist waggles her eyebrows in agreement.

Signora Anna is right. At those temperatures we are mosquito no mans land here in Texas. Good for the bugs indeed.

Hi! The bugs haven't started here for this year yet. And one of the wonderful things about Carmine Superiore is that while 100m below us people have screens on their windows and are eaten to death by mozzies after dark, there is too much of a breeze for them up here. It's a very rare day indeed that anyone up here gets bitten. I think, though, that she meant bugs of the more microscopic kind - there's an epidemic of flu and a gastric virus that has everyone floored and the school classes at half-strength. L

Oh! Sorry to hear that. I hope none of the children fall ill. Glad the heights contains the mozzies. What are they?
