The hotel is quite nice. Our room was great, the pool was very nice. Food was great. Our only issue is that our credit card was charged twice for our stay. I tried to contact the hotel a few times but had no response. Luckily i booked through booking.com and they intervened and managed to get a refund very quickly.

The bus driver then guided us towards a window where the older official sat down and told us just to hand our passports over. Without another question, or buying the flights, our passports were just stamped within seconds and handed back to us. The driver then escorted us, with our bags, into the customs hall and we were just waved back ...
... several coffee plantations, we enjoyed an aromatic coffee break at this quiet and peaceful location. We also tried the cappuccino, which is excellent. It had been prepared with fresh,creamy and slightly sweet milk. Using high quality milk and water is important for making delicious cappuccino.
When we continued our walk back to the town center, we noticed a milk factory across the road. What a coincidence :-).
... Apparently the locals drink 6-7 a day or so our cab driver said.
In the afternoon we did a little bar crawl of the 3 main bars and enjoyed the local Tika bar the most partly because it was really local and partly because beer cost $1. The last bar we went to was Mike’s Grill run by an American couple who met at the South Pole while working there for 3 & 5 years at the research centre. They had actual flags flown at the ...
