Here are some pictures of the neighborhood.
This is the ox that is usually parked at the top of the lane. He is used to pull an oil cart which I think contains kerosene - possibly for use in residential stoves. I was a little nervous taking this picture; I didn't use the flash.
Across the street from Majestic City.
Fruit stand around the corner...
...or, if you'd prefer, the place that sells WHOLE deep-fried chickens.
In case you missed that.
The local Kwik-E-Mart.
The house where I live; we have the right side of this very non-descript building which is essentially a duplex. The only way in is through the garage.
Once you go through the door from the garage into the house, you're actually back outdoors in this internal courtyard.
The other main living space is the living room/dining room. There are also a few bedrooms, a few bathrooms, a den, an office, and of course a kitchen. It sounds larger than it is, but it's very comfortable -- if a little on the shabby side (some major renovations would not be out of line).
The mosque at the end of the lane.
