Each month City Daily Photo bloggers post a photo that’s inspired by the group’s theme. This September the theme is Rusted and Ruined. Above is a portion of an old cart still used to transport rubbish. 24 more words
View from the kitchen. All those little shops are convenience stores, restaurants, hair dressers, etc. I still haven’t found a proper grocery store in the vicinity…
View from the kitchen looking the other way… Beyond those modern-ish looking buildings is ghettoness as far as you could possibly see.
View from the living room. Every morning at 6 there are people doing chants of some sort in that little pavilion while a little man is fishing… Behind the tree is a very big open square (think Chinese military parades on those big squares).
Entrance and my fishies’ humble abode
The bathroom. There is no actual shower, you just stand there in the middle and hope the water doesn’t go everywhere/ flood the flat. I have the ghettoest washing machine behind that shower curtain. Still haven’t figured out how it’s supposed to work..!
View from the bedroom window. Campus stretches out quite far. Beyond campus is a huge ghetto, literally. People live in shacks, on dirt roads, very dirty and stinky. Most of the people around there have never seen a foreigner before… They love to stare and to say hi when they know that much English!
Not the most comfortable bed but I can’t complain!
