text: My house is very nice. It stands on low poles and even has a small verandah big enough for my table and chair. In the only room (101) about three by two and a half metres big, there is a corner separated off as a 'bathroom'. Floor and walls are made of plaited bamboo and because of the many small holes and slits, windows are not necessary. A sliding door of the same course plaiting closes the room.
