"Our Two New Houses. Ours is the one dug into the hill just ahead and to the right of the other one. Walls are 4' tall, overall dimensions are ca. 30' x 12'. Ours is divided into three parts, front third is living eating, office, interviewing, language work etc., middle is sleeping and storage, and a small cubicle at the back where we have rigged a shower, bucket and all. The cook house and it is divided in half, the front half has an open fire (smoke seeps out the roof) over which all cooking is done, and the back half houses our staff, all seven of them. I have had several requests of the following two types: (a) when you get back to 'Amelika' send some of your brothers back to live with us, or (b( [sic] take us to 'Amelika' with you. The funny looing triangular rig to the right is a plastic tarp which I strung up to drain into an empty 44 gal. drum so we could have water, works great, when it rains and up until last week it had been dry for about a month though in the last week we've got 6 inches."
