Houses in Maninjau, West Sumatra, Indonesia

When I was bored with staring at the beautiful and peaceful Lake Maninjau, I went around the town of Maninjau admiring the dwellings of the people of Maninjau town.

There was one which I liked very much. It was built on stilts over a small pond filled with fish (see photo).
