We arrived late the night before, so the sun had already gone down and we couldn’t see where we were staying. I shared a room with John, which resembled the quality of a business hotel. It was nice, clean, and comfortable.
The next morning, we could see how beautiful the hotel actually was. Beautiful landscaping, a great pool, and a magnificent ocean. I have to admit that I had a little bit of an issue initially with staying in such a nice place while serving people who lived on very little money per day.
However… being able to come back to the hotel, have a good meal, enjoy the pool, and get cleaned up was a great feeling and essential to being properly recharged to attack the next day.
The temperature while we were there was in the 80’s but very humid. A very different environment for Americans, so being able to rest comfortably makes a big difference.
