Alphaville on the Esplanade

Like a scene from a lost New Wave feature by Jean-Luc Godard, the Blue Waters Hotel on the Durban esplanade holds on to the last remnants of the geometric age from whence it comes. Largely untouched, the circular lounge looks onto the Indian ocean, with turquoise drapes weighted down as much by history, as by thick fabric. It was a beautiful morning to rediscover Durban via Beach Road; the technicolor saris and bold rhythmic Bollywood performances of the South Africa India Film Awards from the night before still pounding my head...
