How to move furniture...

There are no closets in Albanian homes. A small inconvenience that can be dealt with by having a dolapi made for the room. Well, Jesse's dolapi has been in process and was build downstairs and then in Jordan's room. The problem with that is that it was made to fit Jordan's room and not be moved around and down the hall to Jesse's room. We have problem solvers here and the guys decided to carry this huge "portable closet" up a flight of stairs and out onto the balcony. Ropes were wrapped around the dolap and it was then lowered down to Jesse's window. When it reached the window we had 4 teenage boys to catch it and reel it inside. Whew! What a night in the Zollinger house--but Jesse has a closet now.
