Summer time and the water is easy. But you still have to pump it up! That's how the bore well works.

I was given a bucket and jug at the hill village dhaba where I was invited to spend the night and given the general direction of this public shower/laundry spot... and I wasn't the only one. On the road I came across women, girls and boys carrying full jugs. Either water pumped or clothing.

One women, a teacher or principal at a regional school was even chatty as we walked along the quiet single lane road.

At the well I met two boys, looked like brothers with a load of garments for soaking.

The bath was soooo refreshing, well let the photo speak for itself :)
