Photo of the Week 2013 #33

The Sertão is the semi-arid area in the northeast of Brazil. The typical house here is made with a stick frame and packed with mud bricks and a tile roof. There is no electricity in the typical mud house and with the lack of rain for 9 months out of the year, it is very dark, dusty and dirty inside. The vegetation in this region is called caatinga or scrubland, low thorny bushes that loose their leaves seasonally and a small cacti. This house is abandoned and sits just off the side of BR-222 between Sobral and Fortaleza, Ceará.
