Welcome to my office…
This is my office (that I share with one other person, and probably a third when a new intern starts next month). The whole building has about four of five of these offices and lots of other spaces.
This is the bathroom. The basin/bath thing is called a mandi and you scoop water out of it with the red jug and wash your hands/have a shower/flush the toilet if it doesn’t have a flush. It’s a very versatile room this one.
This morning I was greeted by this foul green water.
This is what comes out of the tap from the town supply, so you’re much better off having a well in the backyard. Everyone has filtered water to drink and I’ve been advised to use it for cooking, washing food and brushing my teeth too. Stomach bugs are far too common here.
Did I mention that I get to work in bare feet?!
Every morning I take my sandals off at the door and I get to wander around for the whole day with no shoes on. Life is so much better without shoes.
