Earlier this week we were driving back around 11pm from dinner at the Shangri-La when we stopped at the traffic lights by the Sheraton. The hotel closed down three weeks ago for 10 months' renovation in which the whole hotel will be made over. However from the bumper to bumper traffic of cars entering and exiting the hotel's parking lot you'd be excused if you thought it was still open. The reason all these cars are heading to the Sheraton? Lined up on the sidewalk at the hotel's exit is a long line of Chinese prostitutes. The cars come in, stop in front of the prostitutes, the customers view the merchandise on sale, make a choice, negotiate a price, and the chosen woman drives off in the car. Right there in plain view of anyone on the main street of the city's main business district. Apparently, ground central for these Chinese pros used to be the night club downstairs in the hotel. Now that the hotel has closed down they've taken their business outside. It's not like the police are doing anything about it.
