The Ayman Peacock,

Whilst staying at the Raddison in Sharm El Sheikh our cleaners name was Ayman.
He cleaned our room every day for the duration of our holiday.
Every other day he would leave a nice surprise for us.
He was very talented in the art of Towel Origami.
He would decorate our bed using flower petals from the gardens and our clean towels.

This is a close up of one of his creations ; The Ayman Peacock.

The peacocks crown is made from a Raddison drinks coaster and a (Hibiscus)* red flower.

* A Big thankyou to Mavis she told me the name of the red flower.

Graduated border made form colours within the picture
