Life Is Not So Romantic
When Seen From the Other Side of the Door
for the majority is extremely hard.
farming season is only about four months long and for the rest of
the year the soil is as hard as concrete.
Thatís not to say that
folks are without chores.
There is always firewood to collect, water to be carried and
in the dry season that might mean a 20km walk, then it has to be
cooked over an open fire; but then of course there are myriads of
children to help out.
Food is stored at harvest and gradually consumed over the
year till the next harvest
local houses are basically wattle and daub
with a flat roof of
logs, twigs, mud and finally grass turfs.
Hardly the best way to keep out mosquitoes even if such
construction was highly successful at dousing fiery arrows from
raiding tribes in centuries past.
