      Hotel is clean and tidy, all in good working order with WiFi and computers to use included. Breakfast is good and reception pleasant and helpful. Would recommend as a good place to stay for the first couple of nights.

      We were booked into this hotel with our small tour and not one of us were happy with it. Rooms are not sound proof, no tissues, no drinking water, no clock, no where to put your luggage, and as a lot of rooms are inward looking over courtyard where dining room opens from, as groups leave at all times of the night, you are constantly woken.Staff are not friendly and all round this is the worst hotel we have ever stayed in.

      ... and away from the creepy bones.
      Leaving the church we continued to wander around the city for a little bit longer, watching as people disappeared to thier own homes for Christmas eve celebrations, and as more and more of the stalls along the streets were boarded up signalling home time. We also decided that it was home time and walked back towards the bus stop in the direction of our hotel.
      The rest of the evening was rather quiet except for a few bangs of fireworks ...

Tuesday and Wednesday were filled with some fun sight seeing that I will let Wade share more about, but in the mix was more catching up with old friends and new friends as well. Tammy 1 hosted a game night with her two roommates, April and Vicky, and we spent the evening eating delicious guacamole and popcorn, and ...

The arts and humanities need to remember this: they don't have to feel inferior to science, and try to model themselves on the. Like physicists, but in a quite different way, they are in the ultimately important business of understanding the world and making sense of it, not just learning how ...

      Nigel: We left HK and headed to our next destination, Lima the capital of Peru. To get there we had to take two 13 hour flights which included an overnight stop in Amsterdam. We arrived in Lima late at night and as we had heard some stories of taxi scams at the airport, we arranged a pick up by the hostel. We also heard that it was common for the drivers to work with thieves and plan bag snatches as you wait at traffic lights. Paranoid about this and ...

Then he turned in behind this tall building that had no signs or anything, just a large gate. In behind this building was a small round about with a brand new prado half hidden behind a gate, chels and I were terrified! (MUM DO NOT PANIC) But when we stopped, he pointed out ...
