I have been gathering animal skins to put on the floor in all the rooms as decorations and to fulfil the function of carpets. This has become a source of daily irritation, however, because every day when I check the rooms, the 'chamber maids' Ali and Segu have put the skins back on the floor facing the wrong direction- and every day I put them back the way I want them, grinding my teeth and swearing under my breath, wondering why on earth such a simple instruction is seemingly impossible to follow, damn it!
Until today, when I finally relized that my 'chambermaids' are putting the skins to face Mecca!
Here such skins are used for prayer... Posted by Picasa
