The wooden houses of Bartin

The wooden houses of Bartin, originally uploaded by CharlesFred.

Very sorry to hear about yet another natural disaster, this time the earthquake in eastern Turkey, which killed over 50 people earlier today. It seems that one of the reasons why so many pepole died was because their buildings were made of mud, and not the traditional wooden structures which are common in Turkey. Let's hope that when the new homes get built here and elsewhere n teh area that they are earthquake proof, as so many of the buildings in Chile recently seemed to have been.
