We didn't have consistent water, but there were 2 spigots outside where people collected water and did washing. The first time we did washing we apparently used the wrong spigot! One was for filling jerry cans and one was for washing... they both look exactly the same and there were no signs, but everyone just knew this somehow! Oops!
We also got quite a few more "visitors" (aka- people who come to stare and laugh at the muzungus unashamedly). One evening it was so bad that we went to extreme measures. 3 women had walked in and stood there talking and laughing. Used to this routine by now, I greeted them while trying to bar any further entrance to the room and say goodbye. Which they did... although not without a bit of a hard time. But it didn't stop there! They went to the window proceeding to talk, point and laugh! So we, as politely as we could given the situation, lifted the mattresses to rest against part of the window. You'd think they'd get the hint, right? Wrong! They then climbed the stairs outside to peek OVER the mattresses through the small opening on the top!! So I raised one of the mattresses to cover it until we couldn't hear them anymore... and went and got a room key!
Did I mention the beetles are HUGE and sound like mice scratching at the door? Well, they do!
