Many villages have public water turned on only several hours a day. Each home fills water tanks such as these so that they have water the rest of the day for cooking, washing and bathing. The tanks are not very large. They appeared to Grandpa to hold about 60 gallons of water.
Our host and hostess prepare chicken tacos for the visitors. The two small bowls in front contain, on the left, a hot sauce, and on the right, a mild sauce. Grandpa thought the hot sauce was awfully mild considering how it had been described. It did taste good on the chicken, though.
