A House with Eyes in its Roof

pages 18-19
This village is in a clearing by a forest full of fir and oak in the Maramures region of Romania. Here, even the roofs of the houses are made of wooden shingles. As I walked through the village, I felt as if someone was always watching me.

It was the eyes on the roofs of the houses. The openings look just like human eyes complete with eyelids, but are actually holes to let smoke escape.
