Small is bright


as well as beautiful.

But I do have one question about this whole "living in darkness" thing.

Why no windows?

These are ways for small shacks to get light, not regular houses.

The poor in the cities often make houses of plywood and tin roofs. They might have a window in the front, but often the homes are crowded together so little light comes in even when you leave the front door open.

shows what the poster calls a "slum" but is actually working class houses (concrete with window bars) but it gives you an idea of how the alleys are crowded with homes.

richer homes like ours have skylights.
