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.

Just down the street is a shopping mall with a Coles supermarket and a bottle shop (liquor is not sold in grocery stores here in Australia); there are also dozens of restaurants ...
... in AUS - less than water or coke), and the salesperson asked where I was from - I told her and she says 'I think of the Hart Foundation' when I think of Canada. Now this threw me for a loop. She then said wrestling ...and I finally clued in, the famous Hart Family from Calgary who had generations of wrestlers in the family and the WWF - that fake sport Mike MADE me watch in my ...
... very large plot of land with horses, trees, and a nice house. The land used to be orchards, but they have since mostly been removed. There was a fire a few years ago near that land, and had the wind blown in a different direction, they would have lost everything. Thankfully, that did not happen as the wind blew the fire away from their home. Also on that drive, we saw a small shopping center, and I learned about some of the past of her and Ken's family.
