    Great Place, Great Location, Great Owners

    We loved this place and the owners! They were so helpful and accommodating. We called for a room late in the same day we wanted to stay there. They were booked up but called us back and offered to let us use their "VIP Apartment" below their living quarters (adjoining the motel) at the Single Queen Room Rate, which they normally only make available to friends and family. This apartment was just that -- not a "normal" motel room -- it had a bedroom, living room, kitchen, and bathroom (all small but all there). It was furnished and decorated very "smartly" with a Middle Eastern theme.

    We had a very nice conversation with the owners in the morning before we left. They told us about how they bought the motel with no previous experience in such things, have slowly put their own "signature" on it (decorating each of the 17 rooms, plus the VIP apartment) in the motif of a country they've visited. We wish them all the best in this endeavor -- they have apparently come so far with this little motel and made it an oh-so-charming place to stay at an oh-so-attractive price.

    The rooms at The Rex are small, approx. 120 sq ft and they make great use of the space. The furnishings are simple and classy, the bed is comfortable and the location is top notch.

    The rooms are facing Queen West, smack dab in the middle of The Entertainment District and The Rex itself is a restaurant/pub that realizes its true character as a live jazz & blues bar by night.

    The food is good and while there is no coffee maker in the room, you are treated to a complimentary breakfast in the morning. The owner is very gracious and the service from various members of his staff, is top notch.

    There is really no reason no to stay at The Rex.

    ... unrehearsed and clumsy announcements made over the intercom. Eventually they were able to string a sentence together and advised us all that the flight had been overbooked. They were seeking three volunteers to take the morning flight instead, offering a $600 credit to be used on another Air Canada flight. I couldn't see that we would really be flying with Air Canada again (that we had not already booked/paid for) and Ray did not want to volunteer. Then I wondered if I ...

Some of these include being in Melbourne for the Australian Open tennis tournament, coincidentally running into our friend Jordan in Singapore and spending a day with him, and being in Thailand for Songkran (their new year celebration which is basically a country-wide water fight).

    Our first stop was the only place I remembered from my one-and-only previous visit to Toronto: Eaton Centre, a huge and very fancy shopping center. In addition to the four floors of shopping, and the barrel-shaped ...

    ... and shoved my pro-Ukrainian ribbon into my pocket. The ploy worked. Two or three groups of Colorados with bats ran through us chasing others who continued to flee.

    It is remarkable how one’s attitude can quickly change: It's nighttime now and gunfire is happening right outside my house. I'm calmly sipping a beer as I type these words. A year ago this would have infuriated me. Now it seems almost normal.

The tide was low when I got there but it grew as we saw it by the evening. I'm always amazed by Alvaro's leadership. People responds to him and serves him as if he's really an important person, especially at work. However, at home, Lesbia pretty much does everything for him and the way he orders her to do things ...
