|container store 'western style'|
|African Container Store|
go looking for a container store in tanzania and you'll not find a big shop that sells lots of boxes. that idea would be ridiculous here. a container store is a small shop built inside a shipping container. they sell small items that the neighborhood would buy kind of like a 7-11 but no ventilation, no light and limited stock.
shipping containers are actually really valuable here has they are easy to secure. we have two at the factory with one more expected. one is storage but one is also work space which gets a little bit warm in the afternoon as you might expect.
the sky blue gate to the right of the container is my new house [pictures coming soon].
