The Porter Hotel
Adam and Alan decided to hike ahead of the family one day. They arrived late at the teahouses and they were all full so they had to stay in the porter hotel. They thought they were lucky because they had the room with a window. They were wrong. All the smoke from the cook stove drifted up and into their room, the beds and ceiling were too short, and there was no room for their backpacks. In the morning after a terrible night's sleep Adam reached over to open the door to get some fresh air and his bed collapsed. These are the kinds of things that make you thankful for small pleasures.
