Thursday, December 8, 2016


When I did a post about me and Namusa (and the dogs) going to the river earlier this week, Blogger friend, Sandra (Madsnapper) noted that we pump river water to bathe in. She asked what we use for drinking water. 
From the river, water is pumped to this overhead tank. Water here is used to shower, wash laundry and irrigate the garden if necessary
Rainwater is collected in this tank via the gutters in the roof

Yesterday Namusa's daughter and friends were passing and asked for water to drink. They'd returned from school nearby where there is no potable water at all.

The school girls were shy when they saw "Gogo" (grandmother) walking behind Namusa
Six pretty school girls eventually posed for me (Namusa's daughter is middle, front)

You may notice the lack of dogs on this walk. People are very afraid of dogs so I left Skabenga and Eddy behind the garden gate! 

I hope you're all having a wonderful Thursday.

Perfect pup

PS: Can anyone spot Eddy, our aging Jack Russel?
