Boutique shops are seen on Main St. in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi
Boutique shops are seen on Main St. in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, August 26, 2015. Ten years ago this week, the eye of Hurricane Katrina ripped through Pass Christian and Bay St. Louis, which face each other across a small bay 60 miles (97 km) east of New Orleans. The storm, the costliest disaster of its kind in U.S. history, caused some of the worst damage in the region here, leaving few buildings standing, killing dozens and forcing thousands to flee. The appearance now is one of impressive regeneration, thanks in part to government grants that helped these towns and others nearby recover more quickly than some urban areas of New Orleans. But behind the fresh white paint of the city buildings and the growing optimism, there are signs of persistent difficulties for these picturesque towns, which can no longer rely on government grants.

A shipping vessel arrives in Freetown as men sit by the side of the road in Sierra Leone November 21, 2012. With its galloping growth rate of an estimated 21 percent this year, driven by new iron ore projects and recent oil discoveries, Sierra Leone is being grouped by economists with the bounding "African lions" - countries from the continent that are leading the pack of the fastest growing in the world. But Sierra Leone's business prospects may look considerably sleeker from a Johannesburg office or boutique hotel than from the pot-holed streets of Freetown, where things like available cash, power, transport and the Internet are services only obtained with difficulty, by those who can afford to get them.

Zhuang Jing sleeps on the bed as she shows a part of her job as a Hotel Test Sleeper at a boutique hotel in central Beijing March 6, 2012. Zhuang was selected as one of three final winners out of 7,800 candidates and started working for Qunar as a Professional Hotel Test Sleeper in March 2010. At present, she has slept at more than 200 hotels. "My job is to role-play travelers of different types, different ages and genders at different scenarios, and see how each hotel fits their particular needs." Zhuang said. Her reviews help travelers make smart hotel picks and bring them a more pleasant experience on the road. Qunar, a Chinese online travel platform, started to recruit Professional Hotel Test Sleepers in 2010. The requirement for this new profession is to sleep at selected hotels without disclosing their real job and write expert reviews about the facilities, location, dining, services and prices of the hotels, in order to provide an independent third-party evaluation and an authoritative guide to travelers, according to the company.

People walk in the metal sculpture park of the Tacheles alternative art centre in Berlin, August 7, 2010. Tacheles, a former bombed-out department store, is one of many forums for alternative culture in the German capital facing eviction from quirky historical properties which property developers want to transform into luxury flats, hotels and boutiques. Many locals and visitors have rallied to the cause, while others protest that the buildings legally belong to new investors who are injecting much-needed capital into a city that has long teetered on the verge of bankruptcy.
