As mentioned in my previous post the water went off on Monday afternoon. I was informed that it would be for 4 days, so by my reckoning this could be Day 4, but to give the Muhtar the benefit of the doubt we'll ignore Monday and call it Day 3.
I have been very careful with my supply of bottled water. I have one wash a day. I wash up the dishes once a day. I flush the toilet once a day...and in between chuck down loads of bleach. The dogs have to have water every day to drink and so do I. Even though I have been careful, my supply is running low, but I felt confident that I could make it last through to Day 4.
I happened to ask Mr A on the phone this morning if he could ring the Muhtar to get some idea when the water would be switched on again tomorrow, in case I needed to go to the village for another 5 litre bottle.
He phoned me back a few minutes later to say that the water was going to be off for at least another 4 days!! The water truck came last night, but of course I was unable to make use of it. Impossible to carry huge containers back up the hill. The shop in the village has now run out of drinking water.
Tonight Mr A has to make another round trip home to take every empty container we have and fill up with water somewhere outside the village.
And still no-one in this village is even slightly annoyed or put out about all this....except me. I am utterly pissed off!
