Every Peace Corps volunteer around the world lives in their own house or apartment. They are of different shapes, and sizes but they are all “home” for 2 straight years.
In Burkina Faso I live in a 2 room house that is nothing but solid concrete, and a tin roof. There is no running water and no electricity.
I have a tiny yard walled off my mud bricks. It does an ok job of keeping the neighbors animals out, not the birds obviously, if I remember close the gate.
I just recently planted some spinich stalks in my yard. They’re doing well.
My shower area and latrine are outside, and open to the sky.
