Technology in rural Afghanistan is amazing, I really enjoy seeing all the things people are able to make out here without complex tools. I got to watch the transformation of a pile of mud and straw into a large, beautiful patio warming stove. The mud showed up in a taxi -- that's right, a taxi. It is general, run-of-the-mill mud. Straw is mixed into and pounded with feet. The mud is stomped out into layers. Mud layers are made into a dome. Only three tools were used to make this, a clay half-dome, a wooden slab, and a knife. The clay half-dome goes inside the mud dome, and the wood slab is used to smack the outside of the mud. The half dome is allowed to dry for a few days, and lifted to where it needs to go. The front is cut out of the stove, and a fire lit inside to cure it.
