These photos are of the construction site next to my office in Addis -- the quality isn't that great, but I still think they're interesting. Some observations on this site:
- progress is slow
- manual labor is substituted for capital-intensive technology wherever possible
- the scaffolding is made by hand on site
- there's absolutely no protective gear (no hard hats, no harnesses while hanging off the flimsy handmade scaffolding), and
- women are surprisingly well-represented (at least at this site).
