UGH did you not complain to the hotel?!?!

Seriously, burn everything you had with you...My skin is crawling just thinking about it....I don't even want to google some of this stuff as I'm already feeling itchy.

I did write a really nasty review on booking.com but since there were already at least 5 reviews that mentioned the bed bug thing I'm not sure how much they care.  I would think there's some government agency whose job it is to shut down places like that.

the dog was SO GOOD and had SUCH NICE PAWS

And my new contract means I'll be working between Barbican and St Paul's two-to-three days a week in the new year. So.
Well then, we've got a date at Chilango's!  Have to get there right at 12 or there's a line.

Oh man, it is proper Mexican food .  There's a Chipotle just down the street but I walk the extra 500 feet for Chilango's.

Can't find a proper menu for it!! Want to try to get my husband to agree to a dinner in London to try Chilango's! haha We usually just go and park at Westfield and take the Shepherd's Bush tube so will need to see what's closest to there.

Shepherd's Bush is Central line, as is St Paul's ... so you've basically got chauffeur service all the way to Chilango.

Or dinner. Oh, by the way, I lost all my numbers again because guess whose special brand of luck meant she got mugged in November.

Hadn't properly looked but you're an absolute legend for making it even easier for me! I might try to tell husband that we need a shopping trip at Westfields in our time off.........and some Mexican food muahaha

Would be rude not to with the line service RIGHT THERE....  ::)

Also, it's amazing how I can read about groddy bed bugs and STILL think about eating delicious Mexican lol

A 30-minute journey into the warm bosom of Mexican food is beckoning!

Just don't stay at Jimbo's hotel; he sacrificed so the rest of us don't have to.

That absolutely will not be happening. We always read the best AND worst reviews before finding a place to book and if I even saw a hint about bed bugs I would probably gag and it'd be a hard pass! haha Thankfully we don't need to stay over in London as we are commuting distance :D

The article says the plane was ready to fly 4 hours later.  Either the poisin wasn't enough to kill the bugs or the poisin was too much to be inside that plane shortly after.  I don't fancy it.
