Apparently, there’s been a massive BED BUG outbreak in Paris, and they’re blaming it on . . . American tourists. Of course, there’s no proof, but they’re blaming Americans anyway.
Anyway, if you’re on vacation and you’re worried about bed bugs, here’s a great trick: Take the hair dryer and BLAST the mattress with it. If there are bed bugs, the heat will make them crawl out so you can see them . . . and leave. (Travel + Leisure)
