They put powerpoints in the most inconvenient of places. They, with all the adapters needed one must improvise.

I enjoyed staying here, but had to watch out for the electricity police. As soon as I stepped out of the room the owner would leap to the outside electricity meter and turn the power to the air-con off. It took lots of messing around to try and get the hot water for the shower to work, and I couldn’t. He had that turned off too. So then I knew how to turn everything on.
