Inside a Kraal Hut

We were invited to view the interior of an African Kraal hut. These women sat down for us where the women usually sit. Men sit on a bench along the left that is not visible. Notice the chairs that had quickly been brought in to seat the visitors!
At the back you can see "the kitchen", the women's domain. There is no chimney. The smoke seeps through the thatched roof.
You can imagine what the atmosphere could be like!
