Airing out the suitcases

April 17, 2012

Pretend you are a suitcase. You have been closed and in the back of a closet for three years in the humid tropics. When someone opens you up – you will smell very musty. Two weeks from right now as I type, I will have just landed in Port Moresby, capital of Papua New Guinea. This will be the first leg of my travels back to the USA. Therefore, I have dug the suitcases out of the closet, put them in the morning sun so that they can air out, and not smell so bad.

In a few minutes, I’ll go dig everything else out of that closet, and wash it with bleach. (Wait, I need to change to an older T-shirt first!) After that closet dries out, I’ll move my hanging clothes there, and that is where they will stay while I am in PNG. One wall of my small narrow office is a bank of closets that I can lock when I leave. This is a great place to keep my personal things when I am gone, and still leave space for someone else to use the bedroom & office. Here is the inside view of part of the closet.

Below is part of the wall of closets.
