Meckele is the capital of the northern province, and this part of the
town is the center, where in the past only the richest people were
allowed to live. Now the poor people live here and many prostitutes.
People here are not all poor, but the old people don't know any different
way of life. These streets become fast rivers during the rain. This
town has at one end the most modern and new houses, which belong to
the people who live abroad and hardly ever come home.
