Rural houses

We stayed overnight in cities in really nice hotels, but we travelled between these cities so  I got an impression on the standard of the houses people lived in outside the cities. It was definitely not the standard in rural Norway even if the surroundings were spectacular at times.

_scf0754A bit higher standard.                                                                                         _scf0757_scf0759                                        I really hope these houses are summer houses as they were high up in the mountains. Notice the solar cell and the parabol antenna on the roof. I still wonder why they lived there. I did not see a single green plant and the altitude was about 3300 meters above sea level.

I was continously surprised about how primitive the standard of housing was, and I wondered hos it was to live in these houses during winter with snow and freezing temperatures. The contrast between the bigger cities and the rural area was also very distinct and that must also mean some social tension, even in China.
