Summer 2013

What do you do when you’re sick at Herräng?

I was fully prepared not to write about my last week until at least this Saturday, if not Sunday, due my tendency to throw myself into whatever I’m doing, especially if it’s the last stretch. However, I now find myself not only with the vicious Herräng flu, but also pink eye. Pink eye! A whole childhood of avoiding this plague and it has found me in rural Sweden. Of course.

So in interest of my fellow campers’ health, I am left to my own devices, which is very difficult in a camp as social as Herräng. And I’ve had to preface many a-hug with “DON’T TOUCH ME!” because the last thing I want to be known for as the instigator of the pink eye plague.

But I don’t want to just moan about my ailments (although, I am kind of glad that this is my last week, it makes going home a bit easier). So instead, I am going to post some photos to show that I indeed have had the Herräng experience. So enjoy!

And for some more ideas of just what exactly goes on here:

So glad I’m here! But at the same time, I’m dreaming of non-communal showers and my own bed… and (if this sickness persists) a much needed doctor’s appointment.
