Things don't belong anywhere else.

August 21, 2003

Journalist (and BoingBoing contributor) Mark Frauenfelder moved his family to a small island in the South Pacific. He's sending regular updates to LA Weekly (and has a cool photo blog). In this update, he visits the house of his daughter's new friend:

One of the older girls, about 16 years of age, goes into the other bedroom and picks through a massive pile of clothes. A mountain of shoes lies next to the clothes heap. Several beds, including a trundle bed, bunk beds and an extra mattress on the floor, are packed into the room like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. (Later, I find out that in addition to the eight kids and two parents, a young woman from the church also sleeps at the house.)
