Description

Color photo. A long leafed spiked plant sits in the lower left corner of the foreground. To the right of that in the middle ground is a circular path leading off to the right in front of a white hotel. The view of the first floor from this angle is primarily blocked by short palm trees; the second floor balcony is framed by a series of arched columns. The hotel continues up out of frame. To the back right of the hotel stand pine trees, and standing tall in the background is another building perhaps part of the hotel. This building is light grayish and has a red roof, as do the drum towers on the corners of the building.
