Where I stayed
Decided not to bother with a taxi & walked to new hotel. Glad I decided to do this, despite dragging my heavy suitcase through ice & gravel (which they've put everywhere to stop people slipping). As I was walking, close to my new hotel I thought I recognised someone walking in front of me. They had a hoodie & cap on, but the way they walked and body stance made me curious. Sure enough it was the lead singer from HIM, Ville Valo. This was a spectacular surprise. And ever the respectful person that I am, I didn't approach him for an autograph or photo. He was trying so hard not to be noticed. He was also lucky that I was on the other side of the street to him. I stopped & pretended to be subtly waiting for a tram like he was, and stood back & took little glances
Then when I came back to my senses I realised I was standing in front of my new hotel. Lucky I had that pleasant surprise outside because inside leaves less to be desired. Definetely 2 star hotel :/ The bathroom is the size of the cupboard from the last hotel, and the sleeping area is the size of the bathroom at Simonketta. Not to worry because I'm only here for the night.
Dump my bags quickly and out the door again.
