Learned? That an uneventful vacation is a memory. But add one drop theft, a sprinkle of bureaucratic mishaps, a pinch of misinformation, and a whole lot of naivete and you've got yourself a story for the ages (hyperboles notwithstanding).

How's that for a life lesson?

SIN that was me that wrote that nothing compares to NYC and if you read my post what I said was that as much as I like SP nothing compares to NYC in my mind.

I don't believe that you should advise me if I have it "all wrong". Maybe NYC is not for you doesn't make it necessarily wrong for me.

Again, another example of the local posters to this web,taking offense...Rolleyes

I feel bad about my previous post. I didn't mean it to sound as if I was ragging on you. It sounded very humerous to me, all your mishaps. Not the theft itself, but everything that insued later.. It was definitely entertaining and I loved your blog style. Enough said? Keep writing and blogging.

Yeah. It looks like we ran out of steam. There's only so much something you can make out of nothing. No hard feelings - and believe me, this was a very rewarding look into a new community.

Especially considering that I'm currently in the midst of writing a long First Amendment paper on the nature of free speech and private censorship in the context of the internet. This was all helpful fodder for my mind.

Good one! Just have to give a comment on the following:

5. When the power went out - they refused to leave the bar to light a candle in our room, yet they did it for other guests. They were mad at us because we had been complaining about the disrespectful service.

Don't think they were mad with you; this is an example of the efficiency of the staff; let me explain:

After confusing an outside spot at a busy public road with a safe place to put your valuables, who knows what you might have done alone with a candle in your room!!

They were protecting you against yourselves! I hope this one helped to reach that posting record.


Live and let live
