Day Trip 2

When we moved here, we shared a communal yard with the neighbors. One day my kids were sweeping it, which I thought was a positive and friendly thing to do, when I neighbor stuck her had out the window, calling for them to cease immediately. She came downstairs, still perturbed, and showed them the “right” way to sweep. First you need to sprinkle water all over, to keep the dust down, and only then can you begin to sweep! And that was in the city! In the country, the dust and dirt will rise much more, given the larger quantity. Another “interesting” though more gross fact I learned about the dust from a doctor friend. Cats urinate in the street. it dries up, and you breathe it in from the dust in the air… together with tiny eggs of parasitic worms! Yuck!!!

I've included a lot of buildings, and you can get an idea of how some creative people decorate their homes…

Bus stop

Apartment buildings are made of blocks of concrete and any bricks that are available at the time, so when they are visible, before being painted over, they are often much more random looking than the wall on the left, which is still unfinished.

Seaside in winter… “umbrella” skeletons

Next to the sea

More home decor…

…and still more

NOT a bus stop…

Roadside market and coffee klatch all in one. Baby carriage would have been used to transport bags of grains or sugar or used water bottles filled with milk, or smelly curds wrapped in cloth…

Note the covered bench on the left, where neighbors can sit and shmooze….

Each yard has an outhouse…
