Hi Kevin,

Thanks for your Friend request and your messages regarding the AITO Accomm. I have looked at the places on the website but most is for twin share or the hostels are not avaliable for the whole week. they have bookings in the middle of the dates.

I will keep trying :)

Congrats on the new site, Kevin. Very smart. But I think it needs to be bigger on your page, here, as you can hardly see the link.

btw. Wasn't there another highly acclaimed one-man show..?
