Flashback from the Camino: Bed Bugs

Since I’m scheduling a bunch of posts ahead of time, it seemed a good time to do some more Camino flashbacks from last year.  I fell upon this entry from July 25, 2017.  I was in the last week of my journey and had discovered I had bed bugs.  Thankfully, the incident was pretty minor — and actually fairly convenient, all considered — plus I knew I would be heading home soon.

I’m going to give the dryer 10-15 more minutes.  Then, I’ll let them have it early.  Bed bugs today.  Pretty sure of it.  Today was a great day for humility — put all of my stuff out to spray , and everyone walked by (all the people I know), and I’ve also been walking around in shorts and a (sports) bra.  I’ve gotten pretty used to it now; actually, I kind of wanted another quiet evening, and I guess I got it, because I’ve kind of secluded myself.  I feel a bit like a leper.  I seem to be making the biggest deal of it, though.  Everyone else seems to be not as freaked about it.  Some have even had them already.  I guess I now feel like my experience is complete!  I just plan on this being the extent of it.  Tomorrow I will wash and dry everything again.  Then, I should hopefully be done.  I may do just one more wash Thursday to make Brian happy.  It will mean clean clothes for the next couple of days anyway.  So much for the romantic embrace from Brian on Monday!  He will probably NOT want to touch me, as he’s giving me my change of clothes and bagging up my backpack.  Ah well.
