Description

Join the Facebook Group here! In the hotel at the end of the world it's business as usual, as Pema dishes up rice and pork curry to travelers who stop by for a drink and refuge from the rains. Everyone there has a story to tell, and at times they end up revealing more than they want to. On their journey to China, Kona and Kuja, bound together by fate, stumble upon the trail of the Floating Island, Promised Land of plenty.
