... animal fur bed headboard and the bed was wider than it was long. There were only 5 rooms in total and a guy with a squinty eye kept turning up from no where and putting food / drink / treats in front of us, with a smiling thumbs up but no words. Anyone ever see the Star Trek episode where the baddy aliens (that look like beautiful women) keep offering sweet treats to fatten them up? Only Captain Kirk wasn't taken in that time, we were on our guard ...

A shithole with a massive, spectacular mine

A travel blog entry by chrisfox93
