In the villages in the mountains the houses and buildings were originally made of mud. In the village where we went on horseback we saw some older houses made of mud. Our horseman explained us how these constructions are made.

He told us also that the last years new houses and buildings are constructed with concrete and bricks. So we visited the newly modern built bar and restaurant at the edge of the village with a great view at the mountains and valley.
