Paulette and Daniel

 

Despite Paulette and Daniel's meager resources, they were in the process of building a house on a little patch of land that Daniel owned.  While their concrete home was being built, they lived in a crude structure made of banana-tree bark (called pay) -- it is one of the cheapest building materials out there.  Their concrete house was nearly completed when the earthquake hit, and needless to say, it fell, as did their makeshift home as well.  They rebuilt a temporary structure in Paulette's mother's front yard.
