I see a lot of construction methods in various countries of the world.
I believe that an indication of wealth or development can best be represented
by some of the variations from country to country.

The first three photos are from Manila, Philippines.

The 4, 5 , 6  are photos of Bangkok, Thailand,

The last 5 are from Katmandu, Nepal

All photos were taken in September to October of 2004
