A Musical Welcome


This is something I hope I never take for granted.

Each time I walk into the lobby of this hotel, I will hear the sounds of the local instrument being played. A series of different sized gongs hit in a particular, with a special rhythm unique to this part of the world.

Situated in the main entrance, it is quite a sight. A solitary musician with a beaming smile. Playing his gongs. He makes it look so simple!

There are bigger ones too, but the little ones that he uses are big enough to make a melodious sound that reverberates through the entire area. Nice way to be welcomed if you are checking in.
