This was at a seedy hotel with water stains aplenty and peeling walls. I stayed here on my way to Japan and it did not bode well for the journey ahead. I like this photo though because it reminds that even in the face of ugliness and uncomfortableness you can often find something beautiful to focus on. Then things aren't so bad. Cheesy but true. And the trip turned out just fine.
