JohnnieWalker volunteers at the pilgrims office in Santiago. The other day he wrote in the forum:
Today in the pilgrims’ office we had two pilgrims with extensive bites from bed bugs. They said the got these post Sarria and in a municipal albergue. They had taken no precautions and of course the danger is that they have been carrying them from one place to the next. Fortunately they were on bikes so they hadn’t stopped all that much! As ever we advised them to report the albergues concerned to the Tourist Office and to throughly clean all of their gear before going to an albergue or hostal here in Santiago.
