Hey 2cents, I've heard the story of an American tourist who thought he had discovered the slum area of the town, when the train passed a large community garden area, and he saw all the tiny houses and shacks
Here's two more pics for you to enjoy. This one shows up close what some of those plots may look like. Many people take pride in "their" little place. I hear they're currently paying about $400 rent per year, and there are long waiting lists.
Here's an idea of what some of those places may look like in the city surroundings. You'll find them everywhere in the country. It's almost as swiss as cheese. The word for it is Schrebergarten or PÃƒÂ¼nten.
Edited to add: Sorry Lisa, I didn't want to divert from your question.
