... to bargain a room down to a decent price but failed. So in the
end we actually used the tout who had followed us and went to Jambo
Guesthouse. We gave the tout 30p for his help (He seemed happy) and
got a decent priced room. Mohammed, the owner, a fellow Arsenal man

Sometimes I think that all the people I like here I want to take with me. By now I could have a great community haha! But about that lady.
