Walk! It’s good for your health!

walk

Here a hotelier is deeply concerned. The late Cyril Gardiner was among the early apostles of fitness. In his Galle Face Hotel in Colombo, Sri Lanka, he installed all sorts of signs to motivate his guests to stay healthy. "Don't Smoke, it's bad for your health" and "Walk, it's good for you" can be found on each floor of the historic grand hotel at the shores of the Indian Ocean.
