Waterbeds III: the pics

Apologies for the quality of the photos, but given the circumstances they were the best I could do. Next photos will be back to my usual high standards ;-D

Bubbling walls
This part of the hotel had just been renovated. The force and volume of the rain was such that water seeped through the window frames (?) and poured down the walls inside, causing the paint to bubble horribly.



A touch of Barton Fink and the peeling walls.







Book drying


We laid the sodden books and games out in the corridor to dry out, then later tried blowdrying the pages, but they were just one big pulpy moosh.











By dawn the water had started receding and the pool area began to resurface.
Flooded pool
Our hotel room was at the same level.
