DIFFERENT TYPES OF HOTELS
When I was a child, I used to love staying in hotels. Now as an adult, I love staying in hotels because they are (usually) cleaner than my own home, more conveniently located, and better serviced. My goal is to upgrade my own home such that I would never want to stay in a hotel again. The other possibility is to stay so long and so often in hotels that I get sick of them.
The longest stay I've ever had was two and a half months in a five star hotel. Back in those days the occupancy rate was only 40%. This gave me the liberty of moving to different rooms to enjoy different views. The equatorial view was my favourite as I could wake up to the sun glistening on the sea. A bell boy (about 9 years old) would bring my letters on a silk pillow. In the end, I became so lonely that I used to wait for the maid to turn my bed so that I could chat to her.

I had jotted down my thoughts of the day during my travels. Now that I've FINALLY unpacked and cleaned up my room, I found these notes. So I will now "back-fill" my on-line diary.
