Water Shortage

There’s a water shortage in the capital city of Dakar so they are diverting water from Thies (where we are) to meet the need of the huge city. We have to decrease our water usage for a day or two. This does not affect our drinking water which is purchased separately, pre-filtered. But for bathing, we are using water brought up (by us) from the well for bucket baths/showers haha. The opinion of this was unanimous excitement! We were all so excited to really understand what it’s going to be like for the next two years. Bucket baths and pit toilets, woo!

Here’s a pic of us shelling seeds in the wonderfully cool afternoon
