          This hotel was in a good location, only a few blocks back from the waterfront. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Rooms were very "cozy" (ie about as tall as they were wide) but they were clean, quiet and had free wifi. What more do you need?

          ... completely and utterly saturated. Despite this, it was a great moment to see the room full of wet and cold climbers, drinking coffee, laughing and trying to keep warm. When Jim went to check in, they told him,'We have no heating or hot water, but have a nice stay'. He thought this was very amusing, but it also meant that we could not warm up and that our clothes and boots had no chance at all of drying before the next day.

          ... to roommate 1 stark bollock naked, spread out on his bed. Again, bit of a shock. The guy is your typical early 20s traveller, spends a lot of time hammered and half or fully naked. Bit annoying, but harmless enough. Feel ok on my first day so have a bit of a wander. Kk is an odd city, quite run down in places, but mixed in with plush hotels and shopping malls dotted around ...

Since it was Ahmed leaving tomorrow we let him decide on the plans for the evening and he chose chili vanilla for dinner. I tried the fresh tortilla wrap with sweet potato fries and salsa, as well as helping Sam finish off the pate she left! Ahmed had wanted to go to el centro tonight for the salsa dancing....I don't do dancing so ...

          ... impromptu night out. We've been here 3 weeks and not been on a night out yet and too be honest not really drunk so it was about time to sample the night life. So we picked up some beer and had a few drinks at the hotel before heading to nightclub, bed....and what a night! It was turned out to be one of the best nights I've had. The club was huge and packed with locals as well as a few tourists. We bumped into a few travellers who we'd met on ...

Brought back memories of eating on Queen St. in Toronto - curry lunches on Tuesday with sax player Chris R., who loved spicey food but it didn't like him.

          Finally, there was the food court on the beach that had over 40 kiosks offering everything from hot meat dishes to huge fresh fruit ...
