As the sun drops, the village softens in the warmth of the golden light, overcast by a beautifully crimson skyline. Flocks of birds fly into the horizon and the sunset breeze tickles the thickets of green cover. Villagers, tools in hand, call it a day as they return to their raw mud thatched homes. Twilight sees tiny specks of illuminated yellow, fire up through village homes. The traditional terracotta hurricane hanging lamps are lit in mellow golden flames on the front porch, light pouring out through them as they swing in the gentle winds. Painted mud-walls come alive in the beautiful yellow light as families sit together enjoying their day’s last meal in each other’s company.
