How the Other Half Lives

It was hard to get the whole thing in the frame, but this was the room I lived in for three months in New Amsterdam. From this picture you can perhaps see that I had a really nice mosquito net to sleep under, with a fan strategically pointed directly on it. And believe me, it was necessary. The walls were that nice strawberry pink color. You can also see how the walls didn't reach the ceiling, instead stopping a few feet short with a bracing of white posts instead. I don't normally live with such a mess, but there wasn't anywhere to put anything (I hung my clothes on a line because there were no drawers there) and it was so hot I found it hard to get motivated to clean.
