Gathering Water



Today's picture shows men gathering water from the Nile River. The picture was taken in the Sudan in 1936. The water is going into water bags on the back of a donkey.

  1. while I am not a fan of city water treatments (and happy to have my own well) I wonder how many diseases were/are spread by drinking water from a source such as the Nile.

  2. Such a short time ago, hard to fathom. That poor patient donkey has quite a load to carry.

  3. It is hard to imagine where we would be, or what other animal would have been so beneficial, as the donkey, in carrying our loads for so long.
