I slept in my room at the empty university each night. It was near the ocean, so always there was sea life around: fish, shrimp, clams, and the like. But no humans anywhere. There were however flies and mosquitos. I had no air conditioning in my room, so when I slept, hundreds of flies covered me. They landed on my face, nose, ears, and lips. They entered my mouth as I slept, and when I realized, I awoke and spat them out.
