The India experience
Yesterday, our house ran out of water. I guess the public water supply has run out of water a while ago, but every decent house has its own underground water tank to even out the shortfalls in the public supply. Only this time the drought was so serious we ran out.
So what do you do? You call someone and ask them to come with a tankful of water. And so we did.
Thankfully it wasn't all that expensive.
Later that day, our maid's husband was cutting the grass, indian style, sitting on the ground with scissors. No lawn mower here. I had to snap a photo.
