The Saharan Motor Hotel, Hollywood, California

Just a quick review of the place we stayed at in Hollywood…

We chose this place because unfortunately the motel 6 we stayed at last time was fully booked by the time we got round to organising ourselves. It was a 10 minute walk to Hollywood Boulevard and the start of the stars in the pavement. Another 5 minutes to Mann’s Chinese theatre. It was relatively cheap and had free parking. There was a small breakfast included with fresh fruit juice, tea, coffee, cereal, toast and waffles; and free wifi which was at a reasonable speed.

hollywoodhotelThe first impression of the room was good, but was let down by the cleanliness in the bathroom. There was a cluster of hairs left on the floor and the doorframe was filthy. Loo and sink spotless, but it was like the cleaner hadn’t been told to clean the doorframe so she didn’t. The grout had come out of the floor tiles and they were all cracked and wobbly. Also my feet were black from walking on the carpet – it needs a good wash.

Otherwise, a good basic motel in a quiet road close to central Hollywood with a very friendly person at reception. Also a handy supermarket just across the road.

Overseas,

October 30, 2018
We couldn’t be in America without visiting a Halloween event, could we? Friends recommended the Jack o’lantern Blaze at Croton-on-Hudson in New York, and we were lucky enough to get tickets. This event sells out weeks beforehand, but I think I happened to be online when a new batch was released for an 8:30pm time slot on Tuesday. So I bought the tickets in a bit of a panic, but didn’t really know what it was I was buying them for!…

A story about visiting East Rock Park, New Haven, CT; + a new year’s eve party dress
December 27, 2019
It was Saturday afternoon in October and the weather had turned unexpectedly warm. Local families had decided to make the most of it, the car-parking areas at East Rock Park were crowded. The little picnic area below the look-out point had people playing frisbee and surprisingly, British football. Couples and groups took in turns to take their photos by the wall where the landscape fell sharply down to a wide vista of New Haven….

Visiting Godrevy Beach, Cornwall – the story and the photographs
September 30, 2019
Continuing the braless theme of my recent fashion post; I didn’t even have time to put one on on the Saturday morning we visited Godrevy beach. As we approached the National Trust hut at the carpark entrance, I covered my chest with one arm, and hung the other out the window to flash my membership card at the volunteer. The bed at the back of the camper van was still out and it must have been obvious I hadn’t been awake long…
