Lost in the Palace of the Lost City


I was admiring the towers of the Palace of the Lost City during a road trip when I saw this dove with an out-stretched wing.  For a while, it was not moving at all.  I thought it was part of the mosaic of the tower. Then, it moved its head. I took a quick photo capturing the bird’s unique position.

The Palace of the Lost City is one of the world’s most extraordinary hotels in the world.  Located in South Africa, the Palace offers 5-star service lavishing its guests with mystical ambiance and true luxury. The Palace is adorned with exquisite mosaics, frescoes, towers with elephant tusk embellishments, hand painted ceilings and expensive artworks. Room rates is from $330 to $1700 per night.
