Within a day, my husband and I will be in Southeast Asia where the climate is tropical and the mosquitos LOVE me. I’m pretty impossible to sleep with in places like this…I check and re-check that no insect is within the netting safety, I tuck the bottoms into the mattress, and I agonize over every time my husband gets up to go to the bathroom-lest he forgets to handle the net with as much diligence. So, it is with great tenacity that I seek accommodations equipped with mosquito nets over the beds for protection and comfort.
This is the impetus for this post: I’ve got mosquito nets on the brain. Remarkably, these have more than a functional use. There’s an aesthetic element too.
