|Alaverdi [Armenia, 2004]|
In part of the world where
hotel bathrooms often leave much to be desired, Hotel Debed, near the
mining town of Alaverdi, plunges to new depths. Many doors and windows in
the ex-Soviet high-rise hotel are broken, the plumbing hasn't worked for
years (water for washing and flushing is carried up the stairs in bottles)
and the manager is distinctly dodgy.
