    The morning of the second day, we ate breakfast next to the world champion Rubix Cube solver. He was wearing a Rubix Cube T shirt, and traveling with his mother.

    ... so I really shouldn’t have expected too much from it. It’s pretty dirty, the wifi is bad, and it’s just not a very welcoming place. It doesn’t really matter for a couple of nights, it’ll do the job.

    I went out for a free walking tour at 10:30am, and it was a pretty poor tour. The guide was really boring, and his english wasn’t very good at all. There were only six of us on the ...
