      ... Sofitel hotel so that we could return the car full of petrol. We drove into the covered concourse of the hotel and I was both pleased and relieved that we had complete the long return journey without a car accident. I carefully reversed the car in the hotel concourse Andy heard a district "crunch" as I hit an unexpected prominent marble feature of the hotel wall.

      ... local community. We had driven through it earlier and could see it was very run down. This lodge had the plan of over turning this image. The industry of the area had been tree felling, but this had been taken over by the government and barely any locals were still involved due to industrial improvements.
