The Road East: Day 5
The shrill scream of the hotel’s fire alarm bolted us out of a sound sleep at 6:00 a.m. this morning. It was the ultimate rude awakening. We dragged ourselves out into the hallway and sure enough all of the guests were evacuating – including a young woman wrapped in a towel – so we headed down the stairs, with me dressed in jammies and bare feet. I guess that was better than being wrapped in a towel though.
