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.

We were originally meant to be staying with Pete for two nights but …
Well that was an interesting trip to the airport with mum. All the new roads would be terribly confusing to any new arrival. It confused the hell out of us.
off to Singapore for a night before heading to Paris via columbo
Hope mum got home ok and isn't just driving around in circles ✈️
... lots of construction. We took our usual open air bus tour, getting off at the Botanic Gardens, which are on a bluff overlooking the Swan River and the city. Spring is noted for its wildflowers in WA and the Botanic Gardens were suitably decked out in all kinds of blooms. WA, especially the area around Perth, is noted for its biodiversity, partly because of its isolation (it is surrounded by hostile deserts). The garden features native plants ...
... a rich cheesy risotto, squid with beansprouts etc, then we had some cheese which came with interesting accompaniments like muscat dried grapes, and a dessert – M’s came in a flowerpot and H’s was a sort of sticky toffee pudding backed Alaska… Apparently this place was frequented by Alan Bond, the Aussie who won the Americas Cup in the Eighties.
(For all who have been fretting about my CD dilemma, it was solved when I went back and found all my top choices ...
