So I finally got out of the Downtown backpackers inn, and into the homestay which I will be at for the month. The place is miles different from what I’ve been staying at before… Downtowner was really a pain in the butt to live in.
Pros: Bed to sleep in for the night, kitchen (though I didn’t really use it much), dubstep posters on the wall, half the time the people I stayed with were cool and fun to talk to.
Cons: The other half, seriously squeaky dorm bed frames, half the bathroom missing, no hot water for the first three nights, no internet (well, there was but the router didn’t work), really weird mattress, unidentified plastic bag with green stuff that noone dared to touch.
So, quite glad to be away from it, all in all. Hope the people I met and exchanged contact details contact me though! Anyway, after a serious mission to lug all my stuff to the homestay, one can suppose I am now Established. Similar to a canine marking its territory in pee – I’ve sniffed and prodded every nook and cranny in the basement that I’m staying in for some hint of potential trouble. But it all checked out, for now anyway.
Now, I say basement, but its really a separate room and is quite comfortable. Heres a sneak preview:
