Your Questions Answered


To answer the questions of the brought about by the previous blog...
What's in it? Water! Lots of it.

Does it hurt? YES! Had to walk couple hundred yards from pump to her house. About 90 degrees out, maybe a little less, though it felt like 90. The coiled cloth did help some.

They carry everything that way...quite amazing.

This picture is not a smile as much as it is a grimace.

I noticed when I was in Jamaica years ago, they carried everything that way. I suppose with practice, the neck gets stronger. If I were Krista, I think I would have put a wheelbarrow on my wish list though. I would have made a really wimply peace corp volunteer.

gentledove,

Actually, Krista doesn't have to carry her water very often, the village kids will not let her. If they see her with her water bucket they grab it out of her hand, or start yelling at her to stop.

She usually lets them help, and "pays' the kids with a piece of hard candy...which is a HUGE treat.
