The yard is being watered again today. Two sprinklers this time, or rather Coke bottles. It’s common in this part of the world to use empty plastic 2 liter bottles punched full of holes to make a sprinkler. Brilliant!
But the country right now is experiencing a drought, with water levels so low that most people have been living without regular electricity or running water for months. We prefer that our own lawn not be watered and have asked this so many times. Yet the watering continues. Why? Mike and I are tired of thinking about it. We never like the answer that eventually makes the most sense.
