Algeria. Another country I will never get to visit. This picture might illustrate why that doesn't bother me so much. Do you know what they call the building material in old Algerian cities? Sun-baked brick. Yes. That's right. Doesn't even need a kiln, I don't think. Just wet some clay, form it into a brick, and leave it in the sun for a day. Voila. It'll last for centuries. Leave me in the sun for a day and I'll last for centuries, too. Only I won't be too happy about it.
