After visiting the Elders in Viana, we took a new road home and there were so many interesting things to see along the way. For miles and miles there were little shops along side the road, people selling cold water and fruit, pineapple trucks, tons of people and lots of traffic. We came upon a pipe gushing water and the people were taking advantage of the "free" water. Water is very precious in Angola, especially when it appears to be a drought year, and you have to pay for a delivery truck to bring it to you. So the neighbors were bathing, washing clothes, or just enjoying the cool water. They were gathering it in buckets to take home even though it appeared to be less than pure and clean. The missionaries have assured us that they do boil it before drinking or cooking with it.
