12:00 am - Coolest thing ever!
Near the hotel is a sporting arena. The outside walls have a bit of an inward slope to them: say 30 degrees from vertical. They are green, and I had assumed it was some sort of astro-turf. Clearly not, for today they mowed the walls.
They used a gasoline lawn mower, pulled up and down the walls with an electric winch. It's real grass. They must irrigate it from the inside, or possibly mist it, as I can't see a slope like that holding on to any rainwater.
I have some photos and a movie that I may post once I figure out how.
