Making Photo Exposé of Hotel Kpalime, Togo West Africa Wednesday, March 28, 2007
How to make for me.
I have made a list of photos to take of a hotels, it is an annoying list of photos, and quite a bit of work.
I think though, if I took all these photos, I will have collected easily all the information about a hotel that I would need to explain briefly. More than what a guidebook gives, but really probably about the same as a guidebook collects, but cannot give because the price of paper is high to print a guidebook of 10,000 pages for every country.
COMMON AREAS Collect printed advertising for Hotel Common room with Television Destinations Reception desk or check in counter Television in Common area to view
DIRECTIONS Business Card Collected for Hotel Landmark - Something large, like the bar name next door. MAP - Travelers Nest Map or graphics with directions to Hotel Street Sign
FOOD Bars Kitchen free to be used by guest Restaurant or Bar Attached to Hotel
LAUNDRY Laundry Service and Prices
MONEY Prices posted on wall for rooms Receipt for payment of room for the night Receipt for payment when they only write in the book and do not give a receipt

ROOMS Bed Best Value for a room in the Hotel Door Locks Examples of all Services Fitted sheets Heating and Cooling Locks on doors Mattress without the sheet Pillow with the cover off Toilets and showers
MANAGEMENT AND STAFF Manager Owner Person that cleans my room
I am working on the site, http://www.hobohideout.com
I think I will have a few hotels I recommend, but keyed in on the manager and the price,, if they change, the recommendation ends.
What does expose mean? Defined: - declaration of facts: a formal and systematic statement giving facts about something
Yes, good, I used the word correct, then wanted to check if I was sure I used it correct.
It is not easy to collect information on hotel, it take a lot of time, and invariably something is forgot, this photo list is a checklist or tick list to make sure all information is recorded, notes are fallible.
