Hotel of Death theories

Sorry about rubbish lack of updates!

Could get internet to work on this computer at Assumption and then we moved to the soviet hotel of death.

One of the largest groups of tourists who visit North Korea are the Chinese. One of the most common reasons they want to visit is because they want to re-visit the 'good old days' or Mao-ist communism. The hotel in Pattaya (slogan: Nothing to compare) was filled with Russians. The architecture was soviet in the extreme and you waited hours for horribly overpriced yet inedible food. I suspect Russians are visiting it for the same reason as the Chinese visit NK.
