Don't draw too close to the border. #46: Ok. Just the overview of the shape of the building and where I picked him up. He's in the corner room here someplace. I don't see why those dam windows were so important. If they were, why they kept popping up. It didn't make sense, but that's all right. They're either here or here. They kept shifting places on me. But, they were like they were supposed to be significant. Later on I described the front of the building which is something like this. Had double doors here. Don't want to draw a curved line, but....... I saw two levels. And, I also saw cement steps. Something like that. Then, I got leary because I've seen .......

Then I tried to get some facial impressions... and idea impressions from the people in here.. that's when I tried to describe..uh..those two other guys. If I see the picture of the fair haired guy I won't have any problem identifying him. I may have with the tall guy and the beard, glasses. I get confused because alot of them have beards and glasses. Not only in pictures but...... I saw alot of...... crowded activity..... real rough guessed it when I said 40. Could be 30, but was more than 30. However, I got the distinct impression was less than 50. Somewhere between 30 and 40, thereabouts.
