The first market was near our hotel …

... was afraid that her sister might do something drastic or severely harmful to herself. I just kind of hung around Lauriane while she was trying to get ahold of her sister, until suddenly with tears in her eyes she just hurried away from the church. I felt reeeeaaalllyy strongly that I shouldn't leave her alone at this time so I ran after her. Once I caught up to her I tried to talk to her and calm her down until I suddenly felt a really strong ...

    This comfortable hotel is decorated with lots of cherries - this is the owner's personal touch. The rooms are comfortable and neat. It is also very closets a railway station.
