Entering the micen school house, you are bemused at the complexity of the place.
The desks, made from pieces of tree bark and re-purposed leaves mashed together to form a solid, are aligned in rows of five with ten desks to a line. A row of five lines– which equals fifty desks– is considered a “nest.” These nests are then layered on top of one-another with floors made from assorted trinkets comprising the solid material on which the level rests upon.
The room– which looks like a hollow-space in the walls of a storage area in the great hall– is one huge classroom. Everywhere you turn you see layers of desks screeching high into the ceiling; to reinforce the strange mishmash structures, you see string strewed about the room in haphazard angles and feather quills acting as fulcrums. You think to yourself that this place is a testament to upcycling.

As always, post this picture below and in your journal with a short description.]
