It can only happen to me.

ImageI got up and left my room for breakfast and decided to take the stairs, giving only a passing thought to the lock on the door.  I continue down the stairs to find all the doors are locked.  Yes, it’s 7:00 AM and I am locked in the stairwell.  No one is ever going to find me.

I hear voices…I’m saved!  They are coming from behind a red metal louvered wall.  I stick an eyeball through the slat.  Suniye! Suniye! (listen please) Help!

First they ignore me, but my knocks on the metal wall are distracting and they cannot continue to work.  So they all come over to peer into the slat to meet my eye.  They are talking to me; I am talking to them, no one is understanding.

Finally one of the gentleman from the front desk comes through the door.  You’re not supposed to be here.  Apparently, I say.  He smiles.   He starts to open the door but I tell him I need to take photos of my brief imprisonment.  He laughs and gives me the keycode to all the doors.
