We're leaving San Blas, a town with an enormous number of bugs, bicycles and bayou's.  The run up to Mazatlan is about 130 miles and will require an overnight passage.

I'd like a picture of the bugs, but they are named jejenes by the locals, and no see 'ems by cruisers.  They really are so small they are virtually invisible, but thier bite packs a wallow.  They and mesquitos thrive in the standing water that surrounds San Blas, but the locals make no attempt to control them, as the bug larvae that live in the water feed the booming shrimp fishery here.

  1. Those bugs sound really annoying!! Does bug spray help? I remember my sister being really eaten up by the bugs on her legs.

    Hope you have a safe passage to Mazatlan.

    Miss ya!
