I am a little concerned about water. The amount in our well has dropped by a full meter since we arrived about five weeks ago; I’m told this is the dry season, so that may be normal. But is snowmelt required to replenish? On the upside, the amount of water I need to bathe has shrunk dramatically – less than half a soup pot. Motionssim three times a week affords the chance for hot showers and hair washing.
