Hold on to the Handrails
My wife and I were just in Cambodia, where we stayed at a lovely hotel. It was mostly very nice, but irresponsibly, it had tile stairs without sandpaper strips—so when it rained, as it did a lot while we were there, the stairs turned into real hazards.
Unfortunately, Natalie learned the hard way when she slipped and fell, which resulted in her hitting her head and ending up with a huge bruise on her bum. It was scary, and I honestly don’t know what they’re thinking in not having those safety strips on all the steps. The Moon Palace in Cancun, which we visited a couple weeks later, had them on all the steps and it made a huge difference. So, the lesson: When you’re walking down stairs, especially at an open-air hotel where the steps can get wet from the rain, be sure to hold on to the handrails.
