Bricks the Nepali way
Our Nepali adobe walls can go upto 36 inches in thickness. Usually in the Kathmandu region the outer most part is built with burnt bricks, that is mostly for the protection against rain. The bricks are angular in shape (see the above picture) where the inner portion gets more mud mortar then the outer portion. And from outside you see very little or no mud at all. Isn't that a neat idea against the excessive monsoon rain?
