Use of DDT against malaria (9)
------------------------------

Hi Craig,

I agree with your observations -but the reasons why people will sit
outside their houses may be varied. When you don't have much to do in
the house -e.g. no television to watch, no internet to surf etc. - then
the outside is more entertaining. Also in some settings, the houses may
be very small and therefore the outside serves as the "sitting room".
Maybe in a few of the cases it has to do with lack of AC. But even when
you have all of that - ranch house, AC etc. the African sunset is such
an attraction -you'll still find people sitting outside in the
evenings.
