      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.

There is a lot of upgrading occurring along the beach front "Costa Verde" and there were people everywhere jogging, biking, playing soccer, futsall and swimming. There were also a lot of paragliders. There are security officers spread throughout the city and constant patrols by foot, ...

      ... for this great transformation to take place.

      Let us return now to the original polarity of the two mythic perspectives of history, of heroic progress and tragic fall, that have constituted our self-­understanding. I have suggested that part of our task is to be able to see both of these metanarratives at once, to recognize both as truths, both as partial images of the whole. Yet I also believe that for us today it is not just a matter of intellectual understanding of ...

      ... staying with our porters in their village the night before the walk. As part of this we watched and 'helped' (in the loosest sense of the word), the local farmers as they ploughed their fields and sewed seeds. The farmer was so impressed by Aby's agricultural capabilities, he tried to marry her off to his single son - clearly I tried hard to stop this happening and didn't encourage or laugh at all..... After working up an appetite following our ...

      ... as part of a machine, the hemispheres as mechanical parts of a mechanical body. There are, of course, only two possible models: seeing it as part of a machine or as part of a person. So we had a 50 per cent chance of getting it right. But we managed to make the wrong choice. Because if instead we had seen it as part of a person, we would immediately have noticed that we were asking the wrong question. Instead of asking, as of a machine, what it does - does it 'do' ...
