Kampala, Uganda

A man fits a lamp made from a plastic soft drinks bottle filled with water and a few drops of bleach and fitted with a metal reflector. It is fitted through a hole cut in a tin roof. The sun's rays diffract in the bottle, illuminating the room. During the most intense hours of sunshine, the bottle gives a power equivalent to 60 watts but, of course, the lighting only works during the day.
