Crystal rainbow

The crystal-beaded walls that so fascinated me at Sofitel's 7Pecados turned out to be made of clear beads behind clear glass panes.

The colors were coming from lights built into the wall (I think). It was an unchanging red during "Casino Royale" but for "Knock Out Night" the light cycled through all the colors of the rainbow. I thought it was wonderful!
