chatty because i’ve no-one to talk to but you, dear readers
I woke at the crack of dawn again, of course, purposefully staying jetlagged as I’m going back to Norway this afternoon, and after reading in bed for a while had a most delicious breakfast at the Soda Club, a candy-themed cafÈ right next to the Cosmopolitan Hotel where I’ve been staying. The breakfast was excellent (with salad! yay! and awesome hash browns) and reasonably priced ($10.55 + tips for a full breakfast with orange juice and coffee) and the hotel’s pretty good too, really, although I was sort of put off by the bed-under-the-ceiling thing when I arrived. It’s certainly situated very conveniently – I had a five minute walk to the conference, there are plenty of reasonably priced restaurants around, a place selling toothpaste and dozens of other things, a Starbucks, a breakfast place and a subway station right outside the door. And as reviewers on Tripadvisor said, the hotel room’s cleaned very well, and sure, the bed’s comfy too. Though next time I won’t get a mini-loft, I’d rather have a regular room. And there’s free wireless, that even has the email ports open so you don’t have to use webmail.
Now I’m off to do some last-minute shopping before flying home – Barnes and Noble on fifth street should be open by now. See ya!
