Workers' Houses
Reserva Nacional de Paracas, Perú

These buildings house the workers who collect guano (seabird and bat dung) for a period of three to four months every year. Maybe they get used to the smell, but I thought it was pretty pungent. Although the owners of these 'crap factories' sell each bag of guano for more than US$70, they are obviously keeping their overhead costs low.
