A lousy run down derelict hotel- it's only claim to fame is that it is the oldest in the city and it shows.I arrived at midnight on the late red-eye special only to find that the hotel was locked.I then discovered that to gain entry I had to go to another hotel pay the bill and return to the unattended hotel only to find that there were no elevators and yes I was on the top floor accessed by shaky uneven ancient carpeted stairs and of course my room was at the end of the longest corridor. Facilities! Zero. There was a bathroom and a sink. I filled the only glass with water crawled into bed leaving the glass on a small ledge at the side of e bed. Fell asleep, woke up reached out to quench my thirst in the dark, missed it and wet the bed! It's a long time since I did that- I have no idea what the staff thought when they came to make up the bed- It's amazing just how much water is contained in a small glass but I fell asleep soon after squelching around for a few uncomfortable minutes.

Back on the road. We had consumed the last of our cereal, the last of our milk, the last of all our groceries we had bought in Australia. We had packed up all our bits and loaded the car.

... takeaway that we thought we could cook some Indian food how we had learnt in our cooking class in India about a week beforehand. We made paneer koftas where I revealed the simple solution to making your own paneer (adding lemon to boiling milk) and a range of dips and sauces and salads. It went down well and was fun to cook in the house for them. We just had time that night to use the washing machine one last time before packing our bags and saying our goodbyes the following morning ...
... We had a drink and then saw their spicy Mexican themed menu. We threw around some options, and Simon politely told the waitress that we wouldn't stay for dinner after all. I made a phone call to have some pizzas delivered to Simon's hotel, and we headed back there and sat in their bar looking out over the carpark. Pizza Hut moped pulled up, I ducked out through a little gap in the balcony wall that Russell had ...
Laura arrived in Perth on the night of the 20th but since she was arriving at night and I have experienced the jet lag of getting to Australia before we decided to meet on the morning of the 21st. We met in the Wombat Hostel in Perth. To be honest it was a strange check in and heres the reason why: I decided to leave early morning and even that was difficult since no one was at the farm to drive me (see past post). I arrived at the main Perth Terminus via train ...
