The exterior of this abandoned school gave me no clue that the walls were adobe, and even when I first look thorough (what was left of) the front door, I couldn’t really believe what I was seeing. I was about to call in the expert, my Patient Spouse, for his architectural opinion on it. The next window I looked through, though, confirmed it: that v-shaped hole in the wall is typical of the way adobe erodes and not at all the way masonry does.
But it still seems odd.

The immediate neighborhood of this church had barking dogs, abandoned vehicles, and a bright turquoise house.
The church itself had a fence with a perfectly-placed* weed and the morning sun.

*Of course it was already stuck in the fence when we got there. It had been waiting on our arrival.
