What a Little Paint Can Do

Recently we had some interesting days watching a crew of painters paint our building by hand--no sprayers, just three men with paint brushes and long handled rollers. When they needed to paint the trim around the windows, they had to come into our apartment. One of the painters wrapped his arms around the one painting the trim while he hung precariously out the window, sometimes seemingly upside down, to paint the mango trim.

The building color is a khaki with "mango" trim.

This is the view from our bedroom window to the front gate in the upper left corner. The upper right corner is our study window.

The building looks so much better with the new colors and the newly painted metal fencing. We hope the owners will paint the inside halls eventually. The manager tells us it's a matter of money.
