Hubei province has hundreds of lakes and rivers, some of which are now in our bathroom.

The bathroom has a marble floor and a fancy shower area: the shower area, separated from the rest of the bathroom by a glass door, has a tub and a shower that goes directly onto the floor. As it turns out, it's not engineered quite right -- the floor slopes away from the drain, and there's no rubber lip on the bottom of the glass door. So I heard Katrina finish her shower and say "uh oh!" I walked in and saw that water from the shower had flooded the bathroom and toilet area.

It's not entirely clear how much of this is our fault; I don't see how you could take more than a one minute shower without flooding the place. The front desk was very understanding. Just one of the little hiccups of a brand new hotel.
