HellO!

I have left and am abroad! Yipee! But anyway. I was talking to a friend, and she said she heard that eating stupid amounts of Vitamin B would give your skin or you (or something resembling your person) this odour that mosquitos don't like. That said, they would sort of keep away from you, which is kind of helpful if you're travelling somewhere like India where if you get bitten, you're in the deep. Anyone hear of this? I haven't until two days ago. I'm going to India this November, so I'm thinking possibly getting smelly for the occasion (if it's liable).

As I mentioned in another post, Avon skin so soft is disliked by the mosquito community, and is a hand cream to boot.

I heard the mosquito's dont like Marmite. Maybe its a rumor...? Anyone else heard that?
