Adobe Façade of Old House

Rudy Giron: &emdash; Old house façade in Antigua Guatemala

It’s incredible to still find old house in Antigua Guatemala that were built with adobe blocks. I have thought most of these houses were destroyed by the 1976 earthquake. I would let you in one my secrets, I prefer the look of bare naked bricks and adobe than concrete blocks. As a matter of fact, I dislike naked concrete blocks so much that I blame on those blocks the ugliness of present-day rural Guatemala.

What are your feelings about bricks, adobe and concrete blocks?
