Windows come in handy for a lot of things. For instance, on Saturday Niki was invited to a meeting of the leadership of the district women's societies. It was held downstairs at the Dios Es Amor (God Is Love) church. When we came in and sat down, because it was a bit of a warm day on Saturday, Niki commented that maybe it wasn't too bad to not have glass in the windows as there was a cool breeze floating in (But, of course, with glass windows you could open them as needed). However other things where soon floating in as well. First off was the pleasant odor of human waste from some outhouse. Not so nice. A glass barrier would help keep that out. And the ever present bugs that find open windows a standing invitation were, well, present. But the worst thing was the smoke. The neighbors decided to burn something, maybe yard refuse, but the pleasant breeze was bringing in the smoke. Before long, not only did out clothes smell of it, but our eyes, noses and lungs were full of it. Again, a well placed window or two could have helped greatly.
Now that was one afternoon's experiences. I could add other things like rain coming in, cold in the winter, noise from the neighbors, loud music from the karaokes, parties and so on.
