Water shortage brings people together

2015-11-12 06:00

THIS is to say hello and thanks to all the people I met while queuing for water in Southport.

What might have been a harrowing experience became interesting as I met new people and had lovely conversations with them.

There are still good people in the world I found as they helped one another to fill containers and some collected water for others.

In times of trouble people are able to help one another even in these difficult times.

I am so pleased to have fresh water and I hope it lasts.

Just another chapter of life in South Africa.
