Kitchen table
A typical kitchen space is located outdoors, since homes in the neighborhood generally lack indoor running water, electrical power, or ventilation for fire-based stoves. The weathered kitchen table at Jeremiah's home is more than half disintegrated from age. But the parts of the tabletop that remain are still put to use.

comments from website visitors:

In Africa, the plastic gets reused, and without the sun nothing ever dries. I like this picture. It reminds me of times when running water would disappoint, and we would still have to wash the utensils outside. Irenio, you really captured "the kitchen".
