    Anyone know history of abandoned buildings

    On the north-east coast north of the gold ruins? My 8yo is obsessed with those building especially the really colorful slatted on with the other building near it that still has a picture of Jesus hanging in the kitchen (I find it so eerie). Anyone now what they were or when they were from?

    You may want to private message Charles or any other full or part time resident.

    Do you have pictures of those abandoned buildings?

    I don't know anything about them but it reminds me of a story forum member Charles wrote in his "Snippets", those cunucu homes where people lived in the country side in former times.

    Here is one of Charles' stories where a cunucu home is mentioned. I love his stories!

    I will have to upload pics from my computer, I am mobile right now. Or if I forget I will post new ones next week. Definitely not traditional cunucus and the one building is actually made with colorful wooden slats and not solid walls. They look more like old little beach food stands.

    Would love to see them when you have the time to post them.
