OK, this is a little complicated, so take it slow.
It doesn't help that it's not a very good picture, I know. Apologies.
But basically, here is the score. The washing facilities in the hotel where I'm staying are behind the first complete red-framed window visible above the van.
Until this morning, water was piped thereto by way of (a) some kind of miracle, and (b) the kinky pipe which you can see heading that way above the back end of the van. This pipe is bizarrely suspended from a wire, tied on at strategic points with bits of string, etc.
Unconventional, but it worked. Until this morning.
In the dead hours of the night, some cad climbed a ladder and attached a rubber hosepipe to the metal pipe. The hosepipe leads down to the ground (to the left of the van), and disgorges all the water that is supposed to go to the hotel washroom onto the ground. Whence it flows pretty smartish into the Sequ river.
This sort of thing just isn't on.
