I like my room a lot. It has lots of books and a collapsed treadmill. But what sets it apart from your room are the drawings on the wall. My cousin, who used to live in this room, liked to draw pictures,

And in case you’re wondering about the words beneath the picture, they are lyrics which I've copied below for your reading pleasure:
“I’ll be loving you forever, Deep inside my heart you'll leave me never, Even if you took my heart, And tore it apart, I would love you still, forever. You are the sun, You are my light, And you’re the last thing on my mind, Before I go to sleep at night, You’re always round, When I’m in need, When trouble's on my mind, You put my soul at ease, There is no one in this world, Who can love me like you do, That is the reason that I, Wanna spend forever with you”
And finally, to the weird-oriented:
Those giant eyes watch over me as I sleep every night. Thank you, cousin.
While I'm at it, here’s the view from my window:
The guy riding on the donkey cart is the one who has the megaphone asking to purchase used goods. I had to ask my uncle what he was doing since it’s hard to understand him--not because of language but because he’s so loud that most of what he’s saying comes out as static.
Just down the street is a fruit and vegetable market. I’ve gone several times now and have been bombarded by sellers advertising their selection with catchy slogans. My favorite is from a guy who sells tomatoes. He kept screaming at me, “Hamra wa gamda! Hamra wa gamda!” which means “Red and hard! Red and hard!” My aunt ended up buying tomatoes from someone else. They were redder and harder.
