Hi Konstantin, What are these towers? Are a kind of barns?


Konstantin Khrapko on January 3, 2012

Ha! No, these are defense towers. If you kill someone, you hide in your tower till dust settles down and his relatives kill someone else from your kin in retaliation. Then you are cleared. Well.. at least this is my understanding. Perhaps can be used during regular war. Cheers!

Beautiful picture...Greetings

So with such a dynamic, I suppose that there must be more towers than people in the village. You were lucky to escape alive!

In any case, Like for the picture and for the village. And bravo to the photographer ;)
