Monday, I left Comox in the morning, Connie-Lynn dropped me at the Greyhound bus terminal, that was so nice! In the bus I talked to this charming older lady, I forgot to ask her name (again).

    This is a very nice place! The common room and kitchen are great, many windows, lots of light... in this dark winter weather, I appreciate! Very well located, close to the waterfront, into the art district. Cafes, restaurants nearby, as well as a grocery store at about 10 min walk. If I come back to Nanaimo I will stay here again!
