on my travels to LEH & KASHMIR
& DELHI & JAIPUR

look, top balcony. i put out a red tablecloth for the photo, of my space.
i have put photos of grandchildren on the wall.
bought meters of white fabric, to cover as much of the brown as possible.
this door leads into the INDIAN STYLE bathroom..
i found this space very convenient as a storeroom.
behind the door.
these bright, daisies tiles are a feature in the INDIAN STYLE bathroom.

with respect i removed the cream lace covers, over the brown lounge.
