I’m in Yakima, Washinton.

Oh boy… what a place!  It’s hot, it’s kinda dirty, and english appears to be a second language.

After making multiple calls to hotels, I finally found one with a vacancy, the Howard Johnson.  They offer free wireless internet (except it’s been broken for over 2 weeks), a pool and hot tub (the hot tub is all torn apart), etc.

The place needs some serious work, but the rate is good, and the bed isn’t too horrible, so I think we’ll stay.

We’re here until Monday (the wife is on business… I’m just here for entertainment), then back to Spokane.

The weekend though… that’s all ours.

Today’s plan… find coffee, find something to do, find beer.

I’m easily entertained 🙂

    We’ve done exactly that.

    Not that there’s much to see here, but we’re trying to make the most of it.

    We did, however, attempt to eat in the hotel. If you ever have to stay at the Howard Johnson in Yakima, go someplace else for food. Yes… it’s that horrible.

    Sorry to hear that the staying place isn’t that great. Have as much fun as possible though.
