Well arrived at my hostel and there really was only one way to describe it. Crap. Cockroaches were having a field day in my room and in the bathroom, the fridge smelled as though many things had died in it and my room was without curtains. Luckily some smart packing of bed stuff meant that curtains were made from the bed sheets I was provided with (only thing they were useful for). The fridge remained closed for 6 weeks and a diet of bread and fruit followed. As for the cockroaches...well you just have to get used to them. Nice pets??? Just don't leave any food uncovered. Oh and who needs air conditioning when the windows can be left open 24-7. The cockroaches had friends to play when the mosquitos came in. All was well though as insect repellent was always around.
