Fifteen Minutes at the Clinic

When Caroline woke with several angry red bumps on the back of her hand and along her wrist, we assumed an insect – perhaps a spider – had bitten her during the night.

At first, our main concern was about the cleanliness of our US$30 a night room at the hostel.  But as the day wore on, our focus shifted to the red welts as they began itch terribly and then multiply.

Soon red blotches and bumps appeared on Caroline’s arms, neck and back.   Either this was one active insect or something else was going on.  We decided we’d better see a doctor.

The young man working at the front desk of our hostel told us there was a medical clinic just two doors down, so off we went, concerned about Caroline and not knowing what to expect.
