I always preach let travel happen to you for richer experiences. Well, that also means you can’t control just how rich those experiences are. In my first glance around the room I took in 2 empty bottles of gin, 3 more unopened ones, a number of 6-packs of beer and a couple tins of refried beans. It quickly became clear that it was going to be a long week…
