Different kind of a season

At home in Louisiana we have all kinds of seasons. Allergy season, cold and flu season, deer season, and my favorite crawfish season. Here, in El Salvador, we have a different kind of a season. It is a season to be dreaded, a season of irritation and annoyence. The season I am referring to is fly season. Yes, the little fly has its own season. Try to think of a time or place where flies were bad and then multiply by atleast 100. When you eat you have to cover your drink with a napkin. You can never just leave food unattended without a designated person to keep the flies away. We asked a local about how long this season lasts and it is a mere 2 months. We have mosquito swarms in Louisiana; here we have fly swarms.
