Not in Kansas Anymore

One more post from the Fairmont Hotel in Heliopolis (Cairo suburb near the airport).
There's something unusual about the bedside table.
Look closely:

It's this sticker.
'Qiblah' is the direction devout Muslims face when they pray- toward Mecca.
In a mosque this would be indicated by a mihrab niche.
In a plush suite in a five star hotel, they provide it for you.
(Just so long as nobody moves the furniture around!)
