Motels dot the highways of America, providing a range of services and prices. We use them.

The aircon in my car doesn't work so I had the windows open and when I pulled into the motel parking lot the pungent and perfumy smell of night-blooming jasmine almost overwhelmed me. I felt nauseated. With my headache already trying to take my head off, I almost puked. I don’t believe in bad omens, but the signs weren’t stellar, not even promising.

The neon motel sign glowed in sickly pastels above the tacky office and a bright-white sign screamed office and vacancy blared out through the window. The sight
