To tyro: rancid odours

  • Thank you John,

    You made a clever assumption regarding the cleanliness of this hotel room. I didn't remember this myself, but it came back to me when reading the diary, that as I prepared to go to bed I discovered that the sheets had probably not been changed for a long time and had a very nasty smell. I spent the night fully dressed lying on top of the bedspread and covered the pillow with clean handkerchiefs.

    But I have stayed at far worse places than that.

    In recent years this pensioner has allowed himself some more comfort.

    Kind regards,
