Abandoned House, Thai/Malay Border

After illegally crossing the Malaysian border, I stopped for a bite to eat at a roadside hawker stall. I struck up a nice conversation with gentleman that was preparing my food, his name was Shake. Surprisingly he spoke perfect English, and while he prepared a fantastic vegetarian dish for me, I stared and stared at this beautiful house across the dirt lot.

The textures and striations gripped and moved me. I thought about all the storms this house had seen, and what the stains were from. I also wondered what happened to the family that lived there. After I ate, I walked over immortalized this house with this photograph.
