    Paula, who runs the place, sure is very amiable, knowledgeable and helpful. The dorms are clean but only mixed... Only 2 bathrooms in the whole place which is quite inconvenient when it is at full capacity. Breakfast slot is only 1h, but it is nice and varied. Check out is pretty early (10am) Wifi is good throughout.

Ten minutes after take off he fell asleep and then proceeded to close the ...

    ... to sit and do nothing! I caught a taxi at 5.30pm back to rejoin the group for the final night. There was a lot of traffic heading through Central San Jose. We were stuck for quite a long time in a rather dodgy looking area!! The taxi driver clearly had no idea where he was going - and it was lucky I was following our route on google maps, as I had to stop him taking me totally in the wrong direction, and guide him back to where I needed ...

    ... edges and box hedges. All rather civilised.

    This morning I walked around after a splendid breakfast as I had eaten virtually nothing yesterday except a bagle with Den before we left and then a sandwich with him at Orlando Airport. Why you will ask? Because I got in latish because of the flight delay and then spent so much time trying to get this blog to work that it was 11.30 p.m. before you could shout 'scoff time' ...
