Some Essentials for living in Loja and a few non-essentials

 Extra water supply when the water is turned off here in Loja  Becca adds new meaning to"climb up my rain barrel and we will be jolly friends forever more."

Sometimes we spend hours waiting for these gas tanks. Sometimes there are days and weeks that this important tank can't be found.

                            New and updated shower head with hot water. The before shower had electric wires that would heat the water as you showered. Hence the name Widow Maker.

We have a washer and dryer and a clothesline. Many people still use sinks like these to wash clothes. The white rectangular object near sink in first picture is a caliphone. This important little baby heats water for the house.

This is one awesome little gadget. It heats water really hot and quickly.

Our drinking water supply. We can spend a lot of time waiting on the truck for water also. We can also walk to the corner store and buy a bottle. They are a little heavy to carry up three or four flights of stairs.                                                                                                                                                             

These are light bulbs with no covers. Most homes have these and you hardly ever see one covered.
