BEACH BED WAR
more participants at Jenny Matlock's Alphabet Thursday
Each morning it is the same scenario. To get a nicely placed beach bed you have to be early. There are really enough and for everybody. So far in this hotel people are very civilized and wait until the office opens at 8 am where against two cards with your room number you get two towels which are then brought by a beach boy to a place of your choice. Very nice.
But there are always people without any scruples who go over corpses to get the beach bed of their choice. For that all means are good. Some are getting up at 5, put a shoe a bath towel or a magazine on the beach bed and return to bed until 10 while others put on their alarm clock to be at 8 am sharp at the beach office.
Fortunately these people have no chance anymore. Everything is removed before 8 unless you sit yourself on the beach bed. That's why so far there weren't any problems. But in the hotel where I stayed two years ago it was a real war with the Russians, they pushed everybody aside, stole the beach towels or they took them into their room for the whole week so that they could put them very early mornings on their beach beds.
After swimming in the warm sea, I am drying on my beach bed before I put on a dry bathing suit.
Empty and full beach beds and one who put a yesterday's towel at 7 am ! I watched him from our balcony ! Watching people and reading is a lot of work in one day !
