Packing Clay into the Adobe Form

One half of the world’s population – approximately 3 billion people on 6 continents – live and work in buildings constructed of earth. Kudos to Ecuador’s Black Sheep Inn for its beautiful collection of photos documenting this age-old technique.

Black Sheep Inn offers affordable lodging in the heart of the rural Ecuadorian Andes. Truly off the beaten path, the award-winning ecolodge (and a personal favorite!) offers horseback riding, mountain biking and hiking.
