Each house has a different colour, each house is painted a different colour.
One house is yellow, one house is pink, one house is red, one house is blue, one house is green and one house purple.
There are no leaves on the tree, and there are two cars in the street.
The two cars are parked back to back to each other.
The houses are all joined to each other, and they have flat roofs.
The street is straight, not curvy.

There is a shadow of the other houses of the other side of the road on the houses, and there also the shadow of the tree.
They’re small houses, and they are old.
The road is on a bend, and there is a hill nearby with trees on it.
A car would not see me if it came down the street.
I can see the roofs.
Where am I?
