Description: Torodi , Niger : July 12 , 2007 . A friendly group of women and children greet me as I walk through the town of Torodi in southwestern Niger . They stand in front of their handmade mud brick house . Each year , an extra coating of mud is smeared on the outside walls to keep the rain from washing the bricks away and the house from falling . The roof of the house is a thin sheet of aluminum held up by cylindrical wood beams collected in the " bush . "
