When talking about cities that ’emerge at night’. Here is an example of the buildings being constructed in front of our noses. It took them less than a week to put up a housing unit (tin shack) which contains 8 rooms and will house – if we downsize the number of people to at least 3 per room – 24 people.
This is yet another example of why it is necessary to have community members trained in mapping techniques – to keep up with the ever changing slum.
Below is half a year old satellite image which shows the same building but without a structure on top.
