Janet Perez Eckles's Blog – January 2008 Archive (9)

If it's past noon, forget about showers or baths.

There was no water supply. That’s right. Back in my hometown of La Paz, Bolivia, water was a luxury to be enjoyed and treasured only a few hours in the morning. At noontime, the faucets ran dry. Ranting and complaining only increased the frustration and probably my parents’ level of thirst, too.…
