The Farm Workers

My brother-in-law own a small farm in the village and has hired a family to look after the farm. They have constructed their living quarters on the top of the small hillock overseeing the farmland. The houses are of semi-permanent nature:


We were granted permission to photograph the courtyard:

The parents also permitted us to photograph the kids:
I just love the face expression of the little one.

The girl was quite friendly:


Other kids were too shy to pose. One more girl, however, obliged:

My nieces also wanted to be a part of this blog post:

The sunset view was good too:

Hope you enjoy.

    Very interesting indeed, especially the house they built. The roof pattern and structure looks rather interesting. Are you able to get a closer photo higher up please. I’d like to see how its constructed. Does it have a wooden frame like our houses under that thatching or is it tree branches just bent into that shape (on the roof)?
