I used to be unable to explain my fascination with such dirty and poverty stricken places. People who live in ghettos like the one above by no means can boast comfortable lives.
Most modern western world city suburbs are made of housing estates with identical or very similar buildings evenly spaced and painted in matching colours.
Third world suburbs have the atmosphere of uniqueness about them. You almost feel the mixture of happiness and bitterness that these places are made of.
I quite like the idea of living in a house built with my own hands from whatever is available for free and then being able to change, adjust and improve it. It’s like being a child all your life.
