“I build houses with mud, I learned this craft as a kid from my father, it’s fun work. People used to help each other in fixing their houses for winter, there are still people who help other, but not like before. It used to be a different atmosphere, the elderlies were having a conversation, the young were fixing the houses while the women were cooking. These mud houses only exist in Jazira area, it doesn’t exist in other places in Rojava anymore. The reason they still exist here is because they are warm in winters and cold in the summer. The houses are made of a special kind of mud, which is black in color, you can’t just use any mud. I personally prefer mud houses.”
