IT’S LATE. The lucky fuckers settling into sleep in the hostel lobby won’t meet your eyes as the desk girl tells you she can’t let anybody else crash in the foyer.
She has to draw the line somewhere; right between you and a warm, dry, safe place to sleep.
Sure, you could check into a hotel and spend 4 days’ budget on a single night of satin sheets. You could also trade in your back pack for one of those wobble-wheeled luggage bags. You could also pull out your eyeballs and serve them speared in a martini. You could.
