More rooms with a view

from w
From memory so there are inaccuracies, here are three more views from a window.
I. in the Davuilevu compound 1963 four single women in their 20s lived in a house on a hill called Veitalacagi - three teachers and a secretary and we kind of looked after the girl's dormitory behind us. The place was hilly and always green and we could see Baker Hall, a few houses and the high school.
2. Shantiniwas - 1971 - was below the Dilkusha Orphanage and it seemed to be always green and jungly with creepers, banyan trees, bamboo and gullies.
3. In Hopetoun (Victoria) - about 1977 - our very plain house was on a corner diagonally opposite the local hospital. We had a pet turtle then - or was it a tortoise?
