Older But Not Wiser
I don't know where my mind was when I wrote the last post. S. is not a niece on my wife's side - she's a cousin! And I don't know where I got the name S. from. It's supposed to be the first initial of the girl's name, except that it should really be T. Doh! Older yes, wiser, no.
To refresh my memory of the trip I took eleven years ago, I dug out a few old albums and came across the displayed photo. Back then in my wife's old village, there was no running water. Instead, water had to be pumped. I recalled having a crave for a cold soda so I got a bucket of cold water from the pump and kept a bottle of the local soda in the bucket. It wasn't quite the same but it was still good.
