This is what I remembered.
Two rooms, one of them with a beautiful mosaic flooring.
Eastern European in design.
Ewalina, the name that popped into my head when I saw this.
A casement window that opened to the inside.
Bare dirty floor.
A beautiful wallpaper.
But it was that first room that I remembered better.
Because of the painting on the wall.
A Persian influenced wall mural. Painted using the traditional method.
I had to leave for Taiwan almost straight after that but I remember thinking as I stared at the wall mural that day: I wish I could show this to Betsy.
