I am retired and living in San Miguel de Allende Mexico for the past 5 years. I am a quilter, painter and knitter.
Pat was a very nice person. First time that I had as guest such real LADY over 60. So I did my best and she seems to enjoy being in my little studio. She also was ready to visit uncommun places (for a tourist).
She just forgot that she read my honest description of the studio.
So, yes the bed is a futon, as I wrote ... Maybe travelling all along the life require more confort after a certain period.
