My last post focused on the simple thatched huts of West Africa, but I don’t want you to think that is the only housing available.
Thatched huts are common in villages, but towns, cities and even larger villages have all sorts of more modern and elaborate homes. Some are really over the top, with fabulous paint combinations or tiled exteriors. Poor John reckons the tile is to minimise mould in the rainy season. Makes sense to me.
Some of the homes shown are built over shopfronts or other businesses. Others are apartment buildings.
I thought you’d like to see a variety of the accommodation I snapped from the truck window. We’ve seen a few presidential palaces, but photos weren’t allowed.
P.S. Not many captions.
