... later. Very few windows - one or two and a door. Water is being carried from the canal in large buckets - hopefully boiled after seeing the cow! I doubt it. It is very primitive.

A bit messy when using the toilet/sand dune, and not a good combo with black shorts, but whatcha gonna do? Lunch truck was at 70km, so 2 banana's, filled up on water and was off.
