She bought the apartment from a man she worked for. Initially, when she first moved to the city, she drove a tractor for him but then he asked her to clear out this apartment which had been in his family since it was built in the 1940s. It had been full to the brim of stuff, apparently you couldn't even get in the front door without having to get rid of things. I think she said she spent about two weeks just getting rid of telephone directories. Once it was cleared he asked her if she wanted to buy it.
A is the kind of person who things happen to, because she has the most open attitude of anyone I know. Adventures and people gravitate towards her. She has been globe-trotting since she was 16, working on a farm in India, singing in a karaoke bar in Japan (most popular request: Abba), walking through the desert in Morocco, learning Hebrew in Israel. Now she runs a healing school.
Some of her treasures were inherited from her Grandmother.
|She tells you the most amazing stories in quite a matter of fact way. I love to be around her, she has such good energy.
