This is the weird thing about it-this was the front wall, and it seemed as if it was jagged like this, ok. Had me confused. This sort of came out a little bit. I'll redraw this because we are talking about two different but I'm giving you the impressions. This was..uh..this came down like this. It was almost like a church, at first. I had the impression of long, long windows, which never really left me. When you sent me to the second floor, I still had these long narrow windows with the sun beaming through that. That's what I saw here. There was a walk around the entire building ...... walk here and you asked me at the end to look out and see what I saw.... saw this big yard with a walk on it going right and left and this was a spacious area. I saw grass. I can redraw that (mumbling) top view (mumbling). #6.5 No. It's ok. #32 (Humbling)........ #6.5 Why don't you label that down here, number 1. #32 Yeah. OK.

This coming out a little bit, like that...something like this. There's a walk here.. .found a door here .... and entry way.... this is where my cement posts were.... something like this. . .they were more than this, but. ....that looked like a parking area. This was very close to something here, but I don't know what. Just as if I couldn't go any further over there. I didn't try too hard. There was an entrance ..... small entrance here. This is steps...entrance here, something like that. I didn't try to remember the building because I just let it go ..... just let it go. These, these just kept adding on as I went.

Cars and porch. This is what I saw inside as I came in. This make this the entry way ..... glass doors ..... porch. Then right across from the doors were wide ...this big area here ..kind of empty-and there were stairs here. White, wide, white stairs. Here you had a thing and this went to the second floor. Next to this you had (mumbling)..... and that dumb picture was a huge..over here .... more like a portrait. No. The elevator was here. This is to the right. This was all empty. I got the impression, a couple times, when I was looking up what kind of floor.. that there were big columns some place. I couldn't know.-.I couldn't place 'em..something you don't pay attention to. The floor was black marble, grayish, I black marble and big.squares with a gold little line.. black dark squares. There was a light over the picture It was a picture of a man. He looked like a former... that just came out.. . .former diplomatic official of sorts. The background was dind of brownish black but there was some red in it. I was trying to see if there was a flag or something there...some red...... and the guy.. .bald headed man, distinguished looking three piece suit, ok. On the elevator (mumbling) rooms when you sent me in here .... ok.... same thing over here.. .but these were....they seemed to be occupied. I don't know too much about this side except there was an entry way here you sent me down (mumbling) something. Ok. Offices over here. These seemed connected, somehow-in the maintenance and the upkeep of the building (mumbling). This is all glass ..... some reason there was a small empty space here in front. I don't know what to put down there, but there was some kind of little barrier or rope or a (mumbling) something.... #6.5 Then you said you saw some people down here? #02 Yeah. This was a very plush offices ....... carpeted ..... and this was....uh....fifty some odd year old man... and he seemed to have two helpers in secondary offices.

Before you leave, let me ask you. Tell me again what you felt about this building. There should have been more people, more activity At first it felt diplomatic. I kept changing impressions that it was diplomatic then a hotel, diplomatic then a hotel. #6.5 OK. So then you went on the elevator. #32 Yeah. Yeah. There's something wrong there, because I was looking at the buttons and I was trying to find which one to push and I could see three or four but I wasn't. sure whether it was three or four. I didn't know which one to push. The weird thing is after I did what you told me on that floor, you told me to use the stairs, and instead of three floors I came down right on to the lobby. #6.5 Oh, yes. I noted that. Very interesting. #32 I said to hell with it. Here I am. That's where it's going to be. #6.5 Sure, but that was very interesting, ok. #32 I didrlt ..I didn't stop to analyze it because I thought.. because then I would start rationalizing. I came down the stairs and I was looking for floors....said to hell with it....I'm back in the lobby.'....I'm back in the lobby. #6.5 You did the right thing. You know. Don't worry about ....I understood when you got off you said well I think we went up.... what ..... three or four floors. OK. Then, when I asked you to come down the stairs, I was going to keep track of how far you came down and ..... #32 Came right back down in the stinken lobby. #6.5 Right. We'll let someone else worry about how many #32 floors there are in the building. Why don't you describe what you saw when you got off the elevator? OK. I got off the elevator and was right at this point, somehow. Now, let me draw that over here (mumbling) direction because that's the way I was facing.

Then I came out here, someplace. Just, just directly in front of it.. I could see the sun light coming through the windows here. What happened was.. went something like this-and not too far here where the rooms were. Now there are some rooms here, but this is the way this went. At least I (mumbling). (Turned tape over) I don't think these were rooms ..................... This is exagerated but these were rooms here...something like this...let me put the elevator.... and the stairs were someplace.... because when I went back told me to go back downstairs I went chung...chung...chung. Right back in the.... back in the lobby. (mumbling) Do you remember whether those stairs went up? #32 That's what confused me because when I was up and then there might have been some smaller stairs-and that's what I was looking for...when you said go down the stairs I just headed for the big white stairs and that ..... OK. Now. That guy that I saw. That half bald, 48-49 year old was in here. He seemed to occupy a double room ok. It was plush. Very comfortable, etc. and you kept ..... you asked me ..... got the impression you wanted me to find if there was somebody else .... there wasn't but.there should have been because I got the impression that normally there was somebody right here. There was. nobody there. #6.5 Could you tell what the function of this guy was? #32 Well ...I was trying to determine some kind of function there..official government function there.... just the impression. He was not connected with the hotel. The other guy downstairs was. He wasn't. And, then I ....when you asked me to see more people... that was very strange because there were some, but the...not hardly enough. All these rooms here seemed a very empty area. Like I say.... you know....I got the flashing impression of diplomatic building and a hotel building For the number of rooms there were not that many people. There weren't that many people, at all. That's about it up here. This was all carpeted. This was all carpeted. The whole thing was carpeted except that marble floor.
