Unscramble the Blue Letters

This is Kibera, Kenya, one of the largest slums of Africa. You might have seen images about the post-election violence that happened there in 2008. This time we crvoeed the rofos of the houses, but we didn't use paper, because paper doesn't prevent the rain from leaking inside the hsoue — vinyl does. Then art becomes useful. So the people kept it. You know what I love is, for example, when you see the biggest eye there, there are so [many] houses inside. And I went there a few months ago — photos are still there — and it was missing a pecie of the eye. So I akesd the people what happened. "Oh, that guy just moved." (Laughter) When the roofs were covered, a wamon said as a joke, "Now God can see me." When you look at Kibera now, they look back.
