There’s no other way of saying this: as of this morning, I have cankles.

Yesterday’s trip to the Monkey Park Arashiyama resulted in some particularly nasty mosquito bites to both my ankles. Despite taking antihistaines for the itching last night, I woke up with ankles more usually found on heavily pregnant women.

It’s not a good look, especially as I’m wearing shorts. And even with the antihistamines, I could rip off both my ankles due to itchiness and general annoyance.


It was worth it all just to get so close to the monkeys. And I’m sure they feel exactly the same way.
