Slum 2:7:8
II: Buildings and Grounds
Bathroom, no fixtures. Open sewer pipe down which residents poured refuse. Unlighted and hard to hit! Note the rat hole in bottom of rear wall. Human feces on the floor and all over the walls. It was so dark here I just aimed in general and shot. In the light of the flash I saw the mess.
