Our World- Homes on Stilts
Meghalaya, a state in the nort-east of India experiences very heavy rains during the monsoon season. Cherrapunjee, the wettest place in the world, is located in this state. This is a home in a village not far from Cherrapunjee. The houses in these places are built on stilts.
This is another house in the same village, where the owner has made use of tins of cooking oil to construct his outer walls. Recycling at its best!
