Jorge truly believed that his kitchen was the sea. The walls were painted in blue and white: blue up to about half way, and then white up to the ceiling. That is why Jorge used always to put his snorkelling mask on to go down to breakfast. He really believed his kitchen was the ocean, complete with salty water, islands and even the odd pirate ship. "I´m going into the sea", he would say to his dad, and everyone would know that Jorge was on his way to the kitchen.
