I never got to take a photo of The Fan Club. Outside every apartment door in KC's complex, there is an on/off switch. I was puzzled as to its purpose, until KC told me to knock on her door rather than use the fans.

Fans?

The complex is designed for deaf-blind residents, so in lieu of a doorbell, the on-off switch activates oscillating fans in every room of the apartment. Then the deaf-blind person will know that someone's at the door, without needing to rely on vision or hearing.

Even the guest apartment I stayed in has the fans, so I used them to cool the apartment at night. :o)
