Ethiopia Local Customs: 83 reviews and 200 photos
Every morning in Africa you are greeted by the same sight, no matter where you are. I am always in awe of folks going to collect water each morning. Many people do not have indoor plumbing, so there is a walk to the well to get water for the morning bath. Then there is probably another walk for more water for another bath. Then for food. Then for cleaning dishes. Then for cleaning clothes. You see small children carrying impossibly heavy loads of water. This happens every day, often several times a day. I have a lot of respect for these folks. It’s a heavy and often hot job, but there’s always a smile and a wave when you pass by.
