Fading wallpaper designs of child-like faces seem to mock you as their ruined visages peer grotesquely. The four doorways gape like the mouths of starved old men, with jagged wooden teeth sticking out from the jamb. Everywhere is the faint peppery odor of thermite.
The stairs are still in reasonable condition and descend about ten feet to Room 22I.
