Wordless Wednesday: Open Window Bricked In

Email   PrintPrint

I was in Tanzania for less than a week and our vehicle broke down on the way to get supplies to lay out the trapping grid. As we waited for help, I stood by this house to get some shade.  I wasn’t sure if it was an incomplete structure or if someone was living it and placing bricks in the open window/doorway to deter squatters.
