In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Grid.”
We live protected lives here in Tanzania. Some are self-imposed protections, others are very much a necessity.
We live on a compound, wire mesh gates (usually locked), a grid to keep out unwelcome visitors, guarded by Askaris day and night.
Our house has two doors – a conventional door and a separate door covered by a mesh which allows an open frame in the day but deters insects.
Our permanently open windows are covered in a fine mesh to keep out mosquitos and other creepy-crawlies.
The slated windows are barred for added security against theft- forming an additional grid.
Finally, we sleep within a mesh to keep out those bugs which make it into the house (more mosquito deterrent).
Grids within grids within grids.
