    clean and comfortable, good staff.
    No TV in the rooms and the front road is very noisy due to it being a cobblestone road.
    don't stay here if you are driving, there no parking without have to feed a parking meter every 4 hours.

    ... was at its height and we had rather discounted the later Ming as just bling. Here however we find many very beautiful works of art: silk paintings; bowls with glowing glazes and restrained patterns; complex and tasteful embroideries; a meticulous architects' drawing of the Forbidden City; a tiny, life-sized cicada in gold, sitting on a delicate jade leaf.

    ... well really haven’t had a chance to get out. Have been out with Lou and Roberta and last week with work. Oh well. Keep flirting at work and at the shop (yes Audrey and Peter!).

    ... Festival' is definitely a great time to visit. Their long history is very fascinating and especially interesting coming from a country with a fairly short history. It was also funny travelling with Tom again and we joked about how we were always meeting up with female friends of Tom's or he was chatting to them over the internet. Due to Tom being enrolled to study medicine we were calling it 'Dr T and the Women' after the Richard Gere movie. Next stop Dublin and the Land of ...
