Ok. This weirdly off topic, but I gotta mention it. I leave my room at the Rameses Hilton every morning, and when I return in the evening, the nice young men who tidy the room leave a surprise on my bed: Towel Sculptures! The first night it was a swan giving a ride to a small stuffed camel. The second night, I was initially stunned by what appeared to be a small child wrapped in gauze, before I switched on the light and beheld a an impressive towel-crocodile holding the aforementioned camel in its gaping mouth. Today it's a small man in a robe (thank god it's small - I don't think my heart could take any more life-size renderings) wearing MY hat. Also he 's sleeping on MY side of the bed. What nerve!
