I need to make a few calls at the line of scrimmage here, mostly light bulbs, the air conditioner was freezing my feet, however the disign at base level starting point is high.
A loud of noise at night from the bar next-door is high, I must use the Air Conditioning because of the noise and there is no screen. What is up with the screens on the planet? Malaria is the first words out of anybodies mouths when they talk about Amazon River.
The place is great, modern room and I have 5 times the number closets than normal. I am not sure how to position this fridge, I am using the closet for security, not a good place for fridge. I will move it or figure out a better security box. When I figure out the how to cooking part it will be a go, I think I can use the alcohol stove to cook vegetables.
Many small adjustments, but I am in a great room, I will concentrate on getting proper lighting in the room. I am laughing, when I put a big enough light bulb in the restroom to take off dim level, I will actually be able to see my face in the mirror. It is weird how few rooms even have mirrors, then stranger yet, not a light. This one is big, with a light directly above, the bulb is baby size, when I make it grow up, and I will be able to see myself for change.
I will convince Bill the owner to either make a good landing site on his internt page, so I can help share the room, a page where the link will not move, or get him to make one on HoboHideOut.com so I help Bill get more renters. I like to point links at specific no surf, no search pages, so readers are not lost.
I know of only a couple more Hotel rooms actually located on the Amazon River, the one I would love to stay in, because it is close or in the Belen Market Area, I like to be close to the market for food, yet pretty dodgy in that area.
