No H20

Foo foo fuckety woo. We are officially out of water. The open well from which water is pumped to the various standpipes on campus has run dry. The oxen cart has been sent to the dam a couple of kilometres away to collect some water. I don't imagine it will be a lot though, once it is split between a thousand people. This is going to make difficult many things. Such as drinking. Teeth brushing. Bathing. Clothes washing. Cooking. Pot washing. Cleaning of things in general. The rains are a couple of weeks away if we're lucky. Ho-hum.
