... his motions. Na al die reviews die we lezen op zoek naar hotels, restaurants en attracties is het verwonderlijk dat er nog geen app bestaat die klanten beoordeelt ipv omgekeerd. Sommige mensen zouden zelfs uit een Pizza Hut geweerd moeten worden...

... and overwhelming helpful to us. We seriously can't believe the generosity of the people here, we often have been invited back for a cuppa and seriously get flagged down on the street because they just want to either be seen talking to a westerner or practise their English. Either way we haven't minded and as soon as we say we are from Australia the topic of conversation immediately turns towards cricket. Some of the people we have know more about the game and ...

... a good selection of English speaking channels as well as the local ones and, most importantly, the bed was very comfortable. Whilst it was comfortable it was only about 6'0" long but it was wide and I had no problem sleeping diagonally. I am well used to this problem as I am rather tall.
