The mosquitoes in the backwaters are mean.
Big. Black. And abundant.
I suppose that's to be expected on a river in a tropical climate.

So that meant we had mosquito nets in our rooms. They were a refuge.
I never used a mosquito net before. They are surprisingly efficient and I was pleasantly surprised. :)

I use them in Kenya and they ARE pretty cool. The only downside is when you can't find the opening to get up & out of bed. :-\ Oh, & when I find a spider in with me.

If it fell on you would also be a bummer for finding your way out. :)
Worse than a spider in with you might be a mosquito--a nice, fat, well-fed one--trapped on the inside with you.
