Our Seismic Shift in Two Pictures

Now 10km north as the crow flies, a whole new world opens upĀ  The aerial photo below is of the vast informal settlement that that we will call home for the month of August. Our shack is located somewhere in the middle of the picture. Notice in complete contrast the absence of trees and high density livingĀ  connected by dirt roads. It is easy to see why we have no electricity or council sewage services to look forward to.
