God has already started his wonderful works on our trip. On Monday, we had a packing "party" wherein we got together and packed up all of the items we received for our friends at Hogar De Vida. Due to the amazing generosity of both of our churches we were able to pack about 20 suitcases FULL of items for Hogar De Vida. This is an amazing ...

... race at the Charlotte Speedway track, would have been incredible. Didn't realise the track wasn't oval and the size was so large.

This is an older motel being renovated that the frugal-minded stay at. It's neither far nor close to downtown. There really isn't anything near it other than other motels, so I imagine it's a travel stop over place.
The staff was really nice and went out of their way to accomodate us. We got to the motel after rush hour and were travel tired, but had a lot to take care of before we could find a sports bar to watch one of the March Madness basketball games. The staff checked us in very quickly and made sure everything was satisfactory. At that point, it was.
The room was nice. It had a king-size bed and a sofa, which was a pleasant change. Usually you get a chair to sit in and argue over who gets to sit in it. So having a sofa was a great improvement. There was also a flat screen television, which kinda of worked. It had just been installed and the cable person hadn't had a chance to configure it yet. So if you know anything about television signals, which I did not, it could only be operated like the old fashioned tv antenna signals. Since the television wasn't configured, you had to manually change channels and wait to see whichever channel the antenna had found. Not horrible but a little inconvenient. We finally found the game we wanted to watch on Sunday night so it worked out alright.
In follow-up to the staff being so nice and accomodating, when we pointed out the problem with the television -- and mind you it wasn't because we were annoyed, we actually thought we were doing something incorrectly -- they offered to move us to another room. The tv in the other room hadn't been configured either, and by then I had unpacked all our suitcases, so it wasn't worth the trouble of packing and moving. It was nice to see the staff being so pleasant.
There was a continental breakfast offered at the motel. It was a little disappointing, as it was a carb-lovers delight. I find it interesting that whenever you are looking for a hotel/motel, the breakfast they define to you on the website sounds to good to be true -- and it usually is. I supposed we shouldn't have been disappointed because that is what we are used to. Just once I would like to see fresh fruit.
I guess you could make the argument that you get what you pay for, but I think that is an excuse. I am sure that somewhere out there my H and I will find an inexpensive place to stay when we're traveling that offers fruit, eggs and bacon. That will be the fun on our next adventure -- to see if we can find one.
