Just like last year,

1. Estonian mosquitoes really like the taste of my blood, and like last year, some of the bites swell to palm-sized tender lumps.

2. Ingrid totally does not enjoy being outdoors in the countryside. Keeps suggesting reading books, watching movies, drawing, anything indoors. Initially seems happy about the idea of going out to dig in the sand, but after a few minutes’ walking, when we cannot see the house anymore and are surrounded by grass and trees, she gets desperately unhappy, and we turn back.
