Although these boys were actually delivering water. Not singing.

No piped water here (yet). There is a well. If too much water is used, there is a good chance the well will go saline. No electricity either (yet). A diesel generator suffices. Apparently in town there is solar, wind and a biofuel plant that has never worked, but the electricity infrastructre has not made it this far out. I imagine waste is a septic tank. I digress.

Water is brought to the house on the back of this truck. From one of the yellow tanks the water is pumped into a similar 1100 litre storage tank outside the house.

On behest of the now absent owner I was going to pop into the local shop that coordinates the deliveries 2 days ago. The people from next door, who I had a late afternoon surf with went in asked for water to be delivered here.

This afternoon the truck arrives and the pumping starts. Not even 15 minutes later, job done. I can shower now. :)
