Recenzii

'This read has been compared to Fawlty Towers and then rated as funnier. I'd have to agree.' St Christopher's Live Your Life e-zine "Five years working in the Holiday Inn in Lhasa facing some pretty unusual challenges." The Bookseller 'Imagine moving Faulty Towers from Torquay to Tibet... Le Sueur has distilled five years of real anecdotes into one hilarious volume' FOCUS Magazine 'This is a rip-roaring comedy of a book... Underlying the story is a heart-warming and sensitive understanding of the Tibetan people' -- The Himalayan Club 'This title follows in the footsteps of author Alec Le Sueur, who worked at the Holiday Inn Lhasa in Tibet for five years, where he had to deal with fly infestations at state banquets and unexpected deliveries of live snakes.' ABTA Magazine
