It's the water!
Water is such an issue here. The other night I took the the wrong bus and got stranded in the monsoon. There was so much water flooding the streets. Jackson and Arzu came to rescue me in the middle of the night and on the drive home the traffic in the flooded city was at a stand/float still.
Yet there is a shortage of clean water. Especially in the communities where the youth I'm working with live. One of the groups in my class at Drishya Camp is making a public service announcement about the water situation. In the meanwhile Jackson is downstairs creating a living greywater filtration pond. And at the end of a long day of dancing and acting with the youth, I'm ready for a bucket bath!
