Our World: Home Sweet Home

Someone lives here.  The walls are decayed beyond the need for fresh paint any more.  Above the door, the decorative arch is totally open to the hot outside air and never-ending dust.  Crumbling cement  balances precariously above the main entrance to this residence.  Electrical wiring and pipes are visible before the inhabitants even step inside.  Not far from here are the residences of more fortunate people, living in extravagant palaces and expensive villas.  Yet this is home to someone here in Jeddah.  Home sweet home.

Home perhaps, but not very sweet.

The door itself, strangely, still looks in good shape.

A lovely door - perhaps the inside is better than the outside.

If this door could talk, I wonder what stories it would tell :)

Getting modern accoutrements into those older buildings must be a challenge.
