Cave Houses! Ooh!

I was meant to live in a cave. I feel it in my bones. My long-ago ancestors must have lived in them. And then, they ran out of caves and caveless people had to build houses: flimsy, ugly, standing stupidly on the plains, wind-whipped and leaky. Boring square walls, no hidden nooks and crannies. So constricting and practical. So...temporary. A cave, on the other hand, may be thousands, millions of years old, and contain echoes of all the people and animals that have lived there before. Check out these Cave Houses , or just Google it yourself.
