We didn't get off to a very good start when there was a mix-up with our room but the problem was solved in pretty short order. We were given a nice greeting by management but when we went to happy hour in the bar, we could not use credit cards. That was a first on this trip! The room had weird lamps, a strong odor of air freshener and the bed was not that comfortable. Also there was no grab bar in the shower and the toilet ran on and on. Wifi was complimentary but weak. On the up side the hotel was in walking distance of Denny's, where we ate dinner and breakfast, and there was a complimentary shuttle to the airport.

Gave our train passes to a young couple in the hotel. We had checked out who was there at breakfast and they were all familiar faces. We saw this couple when we came back from our walk and they had only arrived last night. They seemed to be quite pleased to be given free subway tickets.
... tried a new (to me) cocktail, called a Pimms #1...very tasty. Sandy and I shared a steak while Laura and Kevin shared a cheeseburger. Outstanding food. A bit pricey, but we are on vacation!
Back to the hotel where Laura took Kevin swimming (again) while Sandy read and I blogged. Tomorrow we start "touristing" in earnest. Even with a nap, I'll sleep well tonight. More tomorrow!
Take care my friends!
... too! haha! he still managed to get us all back to the hostel safely! where we stayed up some more chatting to new guests etc, was just great! although the next day I did feel pretty rough!
I'm definatly getting the hand of hostelling! and sleeping in dorms! it's not as bad as I thought! in fact it's quiet nice to know that your not on your own! and if I do fancy a bit of privacy I've discovered how to turn my bunk into a little fort with my towels ...
