Living in a box


Here's my latest watercolour from last weekend's trip to Tohoku. This here is a temporary home "camp" on high ground in Rikuzentakata  which was nearly wiped out in the tsunami. Each row houses five families. Reminded me of living in terraces in England, with all the advantages and disadvantages of living so close to each other.

Yes. The make-shift city hall is just round the corner on higher ground.
