At the turning to the hotel I saw all the staff standing waiting for us in the last light. They had to carry the luggage from the main road to the hotel- about 500m. This entire distance a path way had been laid out made from rice sacks filled with earth. In two places small bridges had been constructed using tree trunks in order to let the water flow beneath. The hotel itself however, once one entered under the great gate, was intact and looked as if nothing had happened, although at closer inspection there is water seeping up through the ground at the lowest level of the forecourt, and every hour or so it has to be pumped out with the foot pump.
