    The guards are on the battlements, not the turrets, but there is no problem with the staff escaping - I confiscated their passports- they won't get far...
    I must admit though that the gardener is a bit obsessed about it being solely his personal bathroom- which can cause a bit of friction with the hareem sometimes.

    I have to share a bathroom with three daughters so I know where the gardeners coming from, the staff probably have more chance of getting their passports back than I do of having peaceful ablutions in the morning!

    Nice plaques guys, are the holes at the top of the plaques for where there used to be combo dials?..... I wouldn't like to drop any of them on my toes, or have to pay for international postage for that matter!
