The motel: not the boulevard of broken dreams but the hotel of depression. And, of course, the internet is not for free: 24$/day for the 2 laptops. The walkway, in front of the room is also the terrace. People are sitting at the mini table with 2 chairs, in the walkway. Whole days. We go to the bar happy hour in the evening. Bar is as depressing. Old couples are being bored. Waiting for something to distract them. Another old couple and there is conversation
The next morning, we go for a wild goose chase. We want to rent a car. Maybe a convertible? We call. No answer. We go on internet. No booking possible if less than 48h. Website not available. So, we start walking. And walking. Office not there. Office not open. Office open; convertible available!!! But: it is probably 20 years old. The roof is manual. IF it would open. Which it does not. We drown our disappointment in booze. 2 whole pints. And book a poodle: Hyundai something.
But, first, we go to Kuranda. That is for tomorrow. Silly enough, we extend our hotel. We are too lazy to look for something better, pack and move.
