Summer in Mud Hut

April 2013,Thiruvannamalai

Summer started in Thiruvannamalai, our growing trees started giving shades. Especially our mud structure is really cool inside. Our beloved friend Shihab Kader, a photographer and a well wisher of Thannal came to visit us and took some photos of our last year activities, including new stage of our mud hut.
