Amazing how this humble structure has withstood weather, time and people and is still standing today for us to admire!

In this case the visible presence of straw makes it seem even more connected to the earth. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply ↓ sandyjwhite July 29, 2018 • 12:17 pm Yes, that is true.

Perhaps it would be more accurate to call it the oldest known house built by European conquistadores who came to the North American continent 500 years ago.

This is of course very old! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply ↓ your thoughts, reflections are welcomed Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
