Here is a picture of the outhouse, the building where I work, at the open window.  In England an outhouse is an outdoor toilet, but in Norway et uthus is a small shed or farm building, which is what this was until we arrived.  Now it’s just the hens who live here: in the lowest level, below the ramp.  Our guests sleep on the top floor, under the skylight.  The photograph is from last year, the cherry blossom won’t be out again until mid May.outhouse-cherry-blossom
