These are houses that I saw in Tanzania. Notice that the houses are made out of mud. Notice that some of them have no doors. Notice that there are windows on a most of them. That’s a good sign. Sometimes, they have no windows, just big holes where the windows should go. Notice the tin and thatch roofs. Tin is better and more upscale than thatch. But there were lots of thatched roofs in rural Tanzania. The mud homes tended to be the most common type of structure for a home that we saw. We didn’t get to see inside, but I have a feeling that it really wouldn’t have mattered. I don’t thing there was a whole lot inside. Rampant materialism has not made a significant dent in the Tanzanian lifestyle.
