MARIANA from Waterloo, Canada

no, your POV is super . But probably because of me thinking that people over there are not tall, I thought it would be mom and kid :))

I feel like I wanna take back what I said about your twins (about them being lucky). Are these mud houses? This neighborhood looks almost the same as what I see in old old communities in Saudi. People walking in the street because they can't stand living in their old, torn down houses. The only difference in what I see here is that around them, are mountains. In Saudi on the other hand, its all just sand and dunes.

But then again, I could be wrong. For all we know, these people might not even move out into a city if given the chance to. Nice capture shoti!

@Fred: yes, I think these houses are made of clay. but they are situated in a very high place (approx. 3000m asl) that even in summer, it can't get really hot, unless you're exposed to the sun. the way I see, it's a perfect place:)
