Great photos PortMoresby! I too enjoyed the Aiken -Rhett house and the different eras of the house it preserved. So many times restorations don't show a very accurate picture of how the house really was lived in throughout time .

A very un-English behaviour indeed. We always complain - if we get poor service - before we pay ! If I'm dissatisfied with a room I've booked then I go straight for the Hotel manager. As long as I retain my manners then I always get a satisfactory conclusion. US - Europe or the UK.
