Streets and Houses in Posorja

These photos show the streets and houses in Posorja. Rain showers cause huge puddles to form and some streets are then impassable. A lot of houses are really just shacks made of bits of wood. Those that can afford it build their houses using wooden planks, but very few people can afford to use bricks.

Families with their houses

These photos show the interiors of some houses. Large families live in small houses. These houses have very few rooms and one room is often used as a living room and bedroom by all members of the family. The furnishings are often very simple. There is no running water but some houses have electricity and electric lights.
