Very nice staff.
Good location when you like it quite.
Good for kids.
The carpets in the room were dirty and full of small bugs.
The swimming pool is only a plunge pool and the water was very cold.

It was very surreal to see people wearing kippot and payot having a beer and ...

I don't mind it and found out a couple of the other students also use different names (including a girl named keegan who is now Carolina). In conclusion I know introduce my self as stewardo and often forget to respond when it is called.

We all made it through and just needed our passports stamped before getting on the next van. This was the start of next delay, it seemed that the immigration office was symphathising with demonstrators - they shut their office saying they had no electricity even though it had been open the day before when there had been no power. Without an entry stamp in the passport, even though ...
