We went out to Surin for an English camp and we stayed at the nicest hotel in town. It was the most expensive too, at about twenty-eight dollars a night. It was the only time in my life that my arrival was broadcast to the world on a sign board.
The room was beautiful, a spacious corner room with nice furniture and good cable TV. One small drawback: not a drop of hot, or even mildly warm water. Freezing showers were the order of the day.
