Since I've been in Senegal I've felt that buildings were built in a more literal fashion than buildings in the U.S., but I couldn't figure out why (except for the fact that you see people making cinder blocks, and then the cinder blocks drying in the sun). I've figured it out! Buildings in Senegal, even very large buildings, are built without frames. That is, the walls are the only structure. Unlike in America where the frame flies up and then is filled in, here the walls slowly rise.
