Around the Worlf with Art: Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso is a small, land-locked country on the edge of the Sahara. Even in pictures, it looks really hot.

But some of the best art is painted on the houses in Burkina Faso--unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any (confirmed) public domain photos of these houses, so I'll just have to link you to them, but they're awesome, so please do take a look:
The African Village where every House is a work of Art
Decorated Mud Houses of Tiébélé, Burkina Faso

Some architecture of a different variety:
