    No show

    It happens to the best of us. I have learned to just let it go and move on. Even if you could run the card the ycan fight it and the credit card company do not want to lose the business so they will side with them. It is a long summer ahead and not worth the trouble. i believe in Carma :-)

    Cultural Differences and how to approach them.

    I would agree with everyone else. They are adults and not bothering anyone. I have seen much worse and I just turn and look the other way.

    Trip Advisor - referrals

    I do have a link from TA to my site, however It is hard to find out if it works or not. When you ask guest they just say they found me on the web or TA so not for sure if they clicked on the link or not.

Way to much to do than sit in the room and watch . These days who wants to watch the news anyway LOL...
