Major point of inspection
is the feet, esp between the toes. Seems we all wear floppy hats and long sleeved shirts.... with jandles at best and often less......
And...barefeet, especially those with old weathered skin, are a good pathway for parasites.
I may go barefoot aboard, but I wear shoes when ashore in any populated area for that reason. I have a friend who always wears workboots in such areas for the same reason...I at least put something on my feet.
I'm amazed when I see some gringo walking around barefoot in places like Livingston or Fronteras, Guatemala
Ha, there is an attractive young female Dermatologist in Guatemala
City. Can't get an appointment with her now since all the old gringos discovered her.
