Water from the well

Luma and I have been having some trouble with our running water.  I mean, we’re thankful to have running water in the first place, because not all Moldovans do.  Running water is more common in larger cities and towns in Moldova, and less common in rural villages.  So really, we’ve been fortunate to find a place with running water and avoid any major problems up until this point.

But it’s started to come and go this week.  And today, we left for work, and haven’t had water since.  And we don’t know why.

So today, we began another adventure.  We bought some buckets, and made a trip to the nearest well.  We’ve got to keep water around for drinking, bathing, cooking, washing dishes, doing laundry, and…flushing the toilet.  So we’ll see how this goes!

Side note: I have to say, having a partner/roommate in all of this makes the whole experience a lot more enjoyable!  Only wish I had remembered to bring my camera with me to the well…
