Wednesday night we were woken up by a dog barking in the room next to us. We called the front desk, but they couldn’t do anything about it since no one was in the room. We ended up moving from our ninth floor room to one on the second floor.

I really didn’t mind because:

1. It makes a good story.
2. I would much rather be on the 2nd floor.
3. The room was bigger.

And the funniest thing about the entire ordeal? Dogs weren’t eve allowed in the hotel!

Thursday, Dad went off to work. Mom, Calum, and I spent most of the day in the Adventuredome, a large domed room that was really a cross between an amusement park and an arcade.

I played some air hockey against Calum, then as he went off to try his hand at the various arcade games, I people-watched.

As usual when in such environments, I took up my post by the arcade’s DDR machines. It was pretty fun, with a few four year olds stamping on the arrows, and one little boy of about eight who actually break danced on the mat. However, the most interesting was a boy, probably a few years older than me, who was amazing, even better than Rachel. That is really something. He did something I had never seen before, which was hold onto the bar on the back of the mat while he played. I guess he used it to keep his balance, but it was definitely very interesting.
