Painting starts

Began painting what I thought was going to be my bedroom, but since it is the biggest room I decided to change with the advice of couple of female PCV's who came over to help paint. Into the Guest/Party room. seeing that I live in town, I should be having lots of over night guests who come to town. Of course I painted the room, ORANGE.

Later this day, I started painting the bathroom, by the way all of the walls where terribly dirty. The ceiling was black from who knows what that the where burning in the there, plus the tile is all torn up, another future project. Anyway, started painting the roof with the help of another friend and the previous layer of paint and the grim started pealing off, so we had to scrap it all off, the bathroom still hasn't recovered. I have basically given up on painting it until the end it is now just the collection spot for all of the junk, supplies, crap and trash.

I still haven't quite figure out the what to do with my trash. There is no regular trash pick up and it seems that the standard way to burn it all in a pit, even in the city. Again, a msytery to be solved.
