Common lounge area
This is the common lounge area where I would often spend my evenings. I rarely could get decent internet connection in my room, but outside my room it was fine. As a result I would come out here to sit at the table to check my email, Skype home, or just enjoy the evening.
Since this was the common area for everyone in staff housing, it was not uncommon for us to eat together out here, or for several of us to be using our electronic devices out where the internet was better.
