I meant this to be a Wordless Wednesday post. Then I realised it needs an explanation.
It’s not a building site. It’s how families in rural Egypt acquire their homes and live. They don’t have mortgages. They save like mad and buy a plot of land. Then they build as much as they can afford. When the money runs out they stop and save again, to build on another storey. When the young ones grow up, they’ll move into the upper storey and have their own families. As families grow and can save more, buildings get higher. I believe it’s not unusual to have three or even four generations living one above the other.
