A different level of art

I never went on a cruise before this year so I had no idea about bed-pets -- creatures made out of towels folded artfully and punctuated with candy or pieces of paper. Stateroom porters in search of big tips leave these little creations everyday atop your freshly made bed and apparently they are as much a staple of cruising as lavish, unending buffet tables. In Hawaii and on the Nile, there they were.
Sister Kate has found a book of instructions and so my new hobby is mastering a towel monkey. That is, as soon as I get all the towels cleaned after the invasion of the Romanian journalists.
