Water ripples break against the side of the pool. The water is still, no one is in it. The pool lays abandoned during the hottest hours of the day. Cutlery jingles as the hotel lunch is served. Ripples wander to the edge of the pool, breaking against the tiled edges like waves on a beach. Leaves land in the water, gathering at one side as they are gently blown by the breeze. They wait for the crowds to descend with bellies full. A further twenty minutes pass until the water is alive with bodies jumping in to receive the relief of the water’s cool kiss.
