Floating on a sea of mud

(Originally posted on Google+, May 10 2014.)

Did I mention that this town is built on clay? A lot of clay. Over 80 meters deep, around where we live. And you only have to dig about 2 meters down to find it - pure clay, looking like you could just scoop it up and start making pots. As seen on these pictures from just across the road where they're making foundations for a couple of new buildings.

(2018 update: We're now in fact living in the building that got built on this site.)
