South Africa, Soweto.
In the squatted area called Motsoaledi, families live in self made shacks. They squatted the area in 1994, after the abolising of apartheid. Still in 2010, they still don't have electricity, and water, even though promised by the government. Neither there are general light posts, because the government is afraid they tap electricity illegal. The most inhabitants of this area are happy to stay here, despite the invonvenience. People came here to find work in Johannesburg, but most are still jobless. In Motsaledi there is hardly any crime because of strong social coherence.
