President Bush brings his own waiters

GEORGE Bush's own waiters will serve him during his stay in Slovakia.

An employee at the Carlton hotel, where Bush is expected to be staying, told the SITA news agency that seven employees have been given leave of absence for the duration of the president's stay.

Bush will stay one night in the Hotel Carlton, which had to accept strict security arrangements for the visit.

The hotel has been closely monitored by the US president's security service since Monday February 14.

However, there has been no confirmation that Bush will stay at the Carlton.

Two other hotels are said to be ready to receive the president.
