You want to see how the other half lives? That is, the over 3 billion people in the world living on less than $2/day? Take a trip down to Americus, GA to Habitat for Humanity's Global Village and Discovery Center this summer, which replicates actual housing from the Global South. Frighteningly enough, Habitat "had to make sure it didn't look too nice, but it also had to be safe. At a certain point, we had to stop making it too realistic. We can't have stagnant water and naked children running around."
