The Hotel on the Roof of the World by Alec Le Sueur
Alec Le Sueur was posted as a Sales Manager to the quote “unlikeliest Holiday Inn in the world.” He works there for five years and in writing ‘The Hotel On The Roof Of The World’ he has given a fascinating insight into life in Tibet generally.
As for what happens within the hotel walls, the descriptions will have you both laughing and squirming at the trials and tribulations the staff had to contend with.This book can be read and enjoyed as either a travelogue or a hotel sitcom. Although it is a true account you must bear in mind that Lhasa and the hotel itself may well have changed considerably since the book was first published in 1998.
I will definitely be encouraging my husband and then my daughter to read this one.
