I know what Mary and Joseph went through
Well...I'm not actually having a baby Jesus and wandering around in December, but I did spend most of today/tonight searching online for a hotel in Melbourne (I get there on Tuesday for a week). It seems that they are hosting this "little" event there next weekend called "The Grand Prix" and every hotel (regular/budget/crack house) appears to be full.
I have two possible options, but neither of them has a bathroom/shower inside the room (it's shared down the hall...but can be locked when you're silkwood-scrubbing your naughty bits and nether-regions). This is not an uncommon thing, especially in backpacker or budget hotels...many people actually are used to it. Although, I'd prefer a room with a bathroom inside...I may just have to suck it up and deal with it.
With my luck, I'll be sharing it with a group of people who are in town to compete in the "Grand Prix Beef Burrito and Cabbage Eating Contest".
It better have GREAT ventilation...
