The hotel room was small, very very small, very uncomfortable ! The bed was very uncomfortable ! If it was any more uncomfortable, we could be called the Flintstones - Fred and Wilma ! Lol !

This was the title of the first book I read by philosopher Alain de Botton and it seemed apt after our recent experiences!

So food had to be brought by cart from the kitchen. The mind boggles! Rowland has said I should mention how candid the guides have been about their feelings about life in general, the political situation and anything that was asked of them. They were ...
