I was in charge of setting up last nights accommodations in Arequipa. We arrived late at night and upon entering the hostel, it seemed that our reservation had gone missing. I thought maybe since I had booked through a partner website, hostel world, that perhaps it had somehow gotten lost.
Turns out that I had booked a private room for us Friday night not Thursday night. I'm sure you can see where this is going. It turned out that they only had a couple of beds available in the 8 bed dorm room.
At this point, tired and having been in a bus for hours on end, Joe was pretty much up to his ears fed up with me. This was actually the second mistake I had made on the reservation, the first not realizing that the price doubled for a private room when you put a second person in it.
Moral of the story, when you are in charge of making decisions that affect your traveling partner, make sure you are paying attention.
I have a feeling that Joe will be booking our accomidations for the next few weeks ;).
