Day 11- I retreat!
I have made it past double digits…We are at day 11 without water and electricity. I decided I am giving up after tomorrow. I want water to shower in and not to carry buckets of water up a hill in order to flush the toilet.
Last night, I became quite hopeful as I saw people working on the electric lines...no longer were the power lines in the river and dangling ready to strangle someone passing by. However, my hopes were quickly swept away as I saw the uniform of the people on the ladders with the new wires were from the telephone company. I guess we will just have to wait a little longer for electricity where we live.
Tomorrow, like I said, I am giving up. I am heading over to Savaii for Christmas and hopefully I will return back home when there is running water or electricity. I am really hoping for at least the running water as being without any water can be such a hassle!
Manuia le Kerisimasi!
P.S. We have been using Chanukkah candles during the eleven days of no power.
