Sure, the bed linens could be updated, the wi-fi could be a little faster, the rooms could stand to house wall-mounted hair dryers and toasters, and they should let me paint the walls in ingenious landscapes of the mind and spirit... BUT Ciao (pronounced Chia) gently helps you mellow out while providing you three choices of fresh brewed joe... baby strength, respectable octane, and Russian... along with a few decent continental breakfast options. It's a safe, clean, green and friendly place you go to hide away from the world and work on your inner labyrinth. If I were ever to get back to that book writin' and sketchin' I'd been puttin' off then I'd seriously consider campin' out at the Stardust Motel in Curtin, Oregon. When I finally manifest big dough, I'll buy out the boarded up cafe and gas stations nearby and set up a really cool vaudville-esque theater, laundry cafe n affordable eatery there. After that, I'll perform a geothermal survey on the area to locate the hidden source of the medicinal sulfurous and coppery waters that feed the establishment's bath water and set up a chillin' hot springs retreat. There's a groovy antique shop next door I still gotta check out. Oh, and with a big pixie-filled park a nice walk away, a giant sun studded convenient store with mystical hours of operation down the street, and a giant tree of life staring me down as I peer out my window at the on-ramp to the I-5 it's quite apparent that this little nook stands to become a wonderous port o' call for alien types like me. Or should I keep this best kept secret on the down low? Gotta remember to decorate that tree before I go. PEACE.
