Gathering Water. In this picture I am carrying water from the well up to the house. This is a daily chore as you can’t use the running water from the pipes for cooking or drinking. Every day, and sometime multiple times per day, I would walk down the hill to the well and gather water for drinking and cooking. This photo was taken sometime in November of 2016.
