Xanadu

I decided to drive over to Kissimmee to take a look at Xanadu myself. I wish the owners would sell it to someone who would like to refurbish it. I'm sure it was really cool when it was up and running. It's a bit creepy now. The homeless have obviously laid claim to it. Beer cans and smashed beer bottles all over the place. The overwhelming stench of mildew and urine. The furniture that was being stored there has been destroyed and turned into beds.

I didn't make it upstairs. I was turning the corner to do so, and there was a half-rolled, blood-stained mattress on the floor. I'm a small woman, and nobody knew I was there. Wasn't going to take any chances. I'm planning to go back again. It's such a shame that this place is going to waste.
