just a quick update to let you know that J and I had to leave the Elephant Lodge at midnight due to bugs in the bed.
This is what happened...
I was just minding my own business writing in my travel journal when I felt something crawling on my arm and I look down and its this weird little knat-looking bug so I kill it and keep writing..
a couple minutes later it happens again I get out of bed and I tell J that I think that there are bugs in the bed.
J thinks I'm overreacting and we take off the blankets and sheets- there are a lot of these little guys, some alive and some dead. J tries to tell me that there are just a few bugs in the bed and I shouldn't freak out. He starts to kill these weirdo bugs with tissues... as the numbers multiple and J's tissue solution doesn't work I say, WE HAVE GOTS TO GO....
J agrees to leave b/c he realizes that the bugs are out of control.
the main problem is that lodge does not have 24 hour guest service or an emergency number so the only thing that we can do is leave.
so we drive 1 hour to the closest city and here we are at 1:42 in the morning just settling in for bed. (after close inspection of our clothes and hair we are bug free!)
we left a message for the inn keeper to call us back and I will update you as the situation continues.....
goodnight and don't let the bed bugs bite.
