Signature offered me a free standing bungalow. It is clean and quiet but sits a few blocks walk from the main strip. If it hadn't rained it would be fine, but I struggled walking through the puddles each night to make my way home in the dark.
They have wifi but only in the main building with no common area to sit. Price was competitive but I would prefer to stay on the strip next time.
Like most places there is no hot water but they provided a bucket upon request.

... 8211; the blatant uncomfortable starring and groping (yes that happens too) had stopped and although we still stuck out like sore thumbs, we felt much more comfortable than we did in the north! Sean ordered himself a nice super hot curry, while I got a psychedelic orange bowl of what was supposed to be tomato soup... while I was gazing into my mysterious bowl of orange surprise, Sean began hiccupping...turns out that his curry was so hot, his body was quite unsure as ...
... and proceeds to tell us that he'd found a place where he could sneak a smoke after meals. When Nick and I ask him what type of volunteer work he's signed up for, he tells us that he does volunteer work at home, and wasn't going to do it here. So let me get this straight: you don't like the chanting, or the volunteer work, and your biggest concern is finding a place to smoke. Why did you come to an ashram again?
The next morning Nick and I get up early, throw on our used ...
