Building the homestead

Description

Houses in the manyatta (homestead) use plastic sheeting to cover the roof in addition to natural materials. This increases the temperature inside by a significant degree but also protects from the frequent rains. Outisde Kisima, Samburu County, Kenya. August 18, 2013.
