Tattoos and Macademias

🇺🇸•🇰🇳•🇵🇷•🇭🇹•🇲🇽

// Part 6 of 7 //

Last year, I had such a great time in Hawaï that I considered getting a tattoo; not exactly, a Hawaiian design (too macho), just a tiny one on my inner arm to commemorate this extraordinary trip on my skin…

My wish astonished my husband:

-I have a needle phobia… I dread the medical test I undergo every other year before the renewal of my UAE residency.

– I was against my son getting one when he was a teenager (his wife is happy about that now)

I didn’t leave Hawaï with a body imprint, but I left Mexico with one : it seems the famished mosquitoes broke their fast on my poor body and  had a feast on my skin….The significant amount of bites in a certain area made it look like cellulite…. red, painful and itching cellulite

PS: I left Hawaï with an ephemeral “ piece of Hawaï”: I brought as many macadamia nuts as the expiry dates on the packaging allowed, and whenever I felt nostalgic I helped myself to some… their distinctive flavor – the way they’re roasted – was enough to make me feel I was back there…eventually they ran out after a few months… I knew I had a temporary “souvenir and enjoyed it while it lasted.
