The Airstream Granddaddy Hotel -

The Grand Daddy Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa looks traditional from ground level.  Until you make your way to the roof.  The penthouse of the hotel is actually 7 Airstream trailers, 6 of which were imported from the USA.  Each Airstream is considered a “room” and sleeps up to 2 people and each once has a whimsical, unique theme.  Among the themes, they have the John Lennon & Yoko Ono trailer, the Goldilocks and the 3 Bears trailer and a more traditional Pleasantville trailer.

HH: I could do this for a couple days

(always wondered where the old Airstreams went to die.)
