I get to stay in some rather exotic hotels in my travels. I think my favourites would be the Paraa Safari Lodge at Murchison Falls in Northern Uganda, or the Jacir Palace in Bethlehem.
My most forgettable stay would have to be the Continental Inn, Bweyale in Uganda where running water and electricity are optional. I tend to rate hotels on the thickness of the towels, how often the sheets are changed and the quality of the toilet paper, if provided. My most memorable stay must be the YMCA in Hong Kong. It doesn’t exactly look like a hotel. Overlooking Tsing Ma Bridge on Ma Wan Island, Noah’s Ark is the only life size replica in the world. More profitable that the nearby Disney World, Noah’s Ark has five levels including a bio-diversity and environmental centre, a museum exploring expeditions to find the original Noah’s Ark and when you are hungry, a restaurant. But on the top deck, above the animal quarters, is a hotel. Each room has a patio on the top deck that looks out over a biblical garden. Picture yourself building a boat the length of one and a half football fields and as high as a four-story building. Most of us are familiar with the story of Noah and his Ark - probably too familiar and we lose sight of the challenge God gave him. The story of Noah’s life involves not one, but two great floods. The world in Noah’s day was flooded with evil. Eugene Paterson in the Message translates Genesis 6:5-7:
“God saw that human evil was out of control. People thought evil, imagined evil - evil, evil, evil from morning to night. God was sorry he had made the human race in the first place; it broke his heart. God said “I’ll get rid of my ruined creation, make a clean sweep: people, animals, snakes and bugs, birds - the works. I’m sorry I made them.” (Genesis 6:5-7)
