I've never done that before. I've only ever really been from the school to the store, to my home, and they're all down one street.
It was eye-opening.
I had never known living conditions for people in the community were that bad. I've been here four months and I really had no clue. I expected a level of neglect, because I'm not blind, but this was worse than even those meagre expectations. In several of the houses it was akin to slumming in a derelict building... after the explosives have been set.
