Snapped a few photos of what the new Fischer development coming up over here in Algiers looks like. These houses went up pretty fast. I am sure they are better than the previous buildings that were there but can’t speak for how they will stand up to a hurricane.

The first phase of the development was finished a few years back and there have been a few murders in there since. Maybe one a year or less. There’s a convenience store outside the development that has seen perhaps five murders in the last two years.

Even though the poverty is less concentrated. It still seems concentrated.

    It shames me that our society is caught somewhere between “not really serious about confronting poverty” and “throw money at the problem so we can look like we’re doing something about it.”
