Let´s continue the tour of the strange place in which I live.  Now we go on to the courtyard, the central hang out for residents during the day.

Now we go into the communal kitchen.  Lots of cooking happens here after volunteering, and most of it involves combined efforts, combined foods, and combining meals.

Part of the reason communal cooking is so popular is because this is the only cooking device.  The flames can go up to a foot high, and 3 people have singed their hair.
