House in the Grass

A couple months ago, Nate and I took a walk through the countryside here in Santiago. We saw this house in the grass and were fascinated by it:

House in the Grass

It was interesting to imagine what life was like for the people who lived here: what did they see through their windows? Was it dark inside? Did they sometimes walk along their roof because they could? Did they wish their house could be like their neighbors’ houses, which were set up on the grass instead of in it? How claustrophobic did they feel, or were they used to it? Seriously engrossing questions (that I still think about when I see this photo)!
