The menu has an extensive range of options, Read More

Restrooms Review

Restrooms Review

The morning mantra: “Money? Tick. Keys? Tick. iPhone? Tick. Toilet paper? Tick.” Really? Really. (You just can’t be sure the restrooms you will be using as you move around Majuro will have the necessary ‘soft and absorbent’ stuff at your fingertips.) And why do all bathrooms have large red Folger coffee cans (or buckets, or old Read More
