Some guy affiliated with the hotel takes us up in the lift and then tries to take us into the wrong room where someone is asleep....also hilarious if it isn't your room. ...
... of these taxicles around....all in a long row picking up and dropping off people. The open air (with a little canopy) ride was fun...
