Dear Cynthia, We are very sorry for the negative experience you had. Honestly we are a bit confused as to how this happened and are left guessing and scratching our heads without more details.

We took a taxi there and they should've been open but they wouldn't open the door. What a waste! We didn't go back - why waste my time and money.
