Here by Glimpses Known

Here are our neighbors to the east, except for the lady on the right holding the boy; so, you know, if you don't like kids, it might drive you crazy to live here--especially since one tends to keep the windows open in hopes of catching a breeze. 

The older lady in blue on the left is Ma Aïcha, mother of our landlady. Ba Aïcha, whom we call Bacoco (grandfather) is a tailor, and his sewing machine is set up just behind the pink-shuttered window so he can work and visit and take advantage of the light.
