      Very caring staff with an interestingly decorated lobby. Rooms were quite bland and stinky but was an alright stay.

      Back to reality

      A travel blog entry by suecl on Apr 11, 2015

      And so after a long flight - 12+ hours - we arrived in Paris, grabbed a quick drink and then on to Birmingham. Unfortunately, Pat's suitcase decided to stop off in Paris but will hopefully be delivered tomorrow! Back to a sunny UK, with a temperature not much cooler than Hanoi yesterday, where the blossom is in full swing. Lots of memories of a lovely holiday. ...

      Off we go!!

Somewhere along the way we lost 7hrs in time difference and most of Thursday. And so we arrived - not sure if it was Thursday or Friday - ready to start our adventures. ...

      Coventry is an old 12th century city that was destroyed during WWII, then rebuilt. There are ruins of old cathedrals that were bombed, yet remain picturesque. Coventry keeps the ruins as a reminder of the futility of war.

      There was also a statue of Lady Godiva, who rode through the town naked to protest rising taxes. It worked. Who knew that was all it took? Let's go. Take off your pants!

      Living in the dorms at UCLA, the concept of privacy has become all but lost. Living in one large room with 2 people, you learn the value of having personal time, how to make the smallest amount of noise, and how to dress/get ready for school/surf the internet when the lights are out.

      Most especially, it forces you to have a close relationship with your roommates, if for no reason than to have someone to talk ...
